Dear Marietta Parents and Families:

I want to take this opportunity to personally invite you, as well as other family and friends, to join us for Family Weekend 2017 from September 22nd through the 24th. We look forward each fall to sharing the Marietta College experience with our students’ families and saluting our rich history and traditions that make Marietta such a distinctive place to live and learn

Throughout the weekend, you will have opportunities to appreciate our picturesque campus, grab a burger at the football tailgate with our exceptional faculty and gain greater insight into Marietta College’s mission that allows our students — your sons and daughters — to discover their calling and translate it into a career — as well as make a difference in the world

I encourage you to take advantage of the activities planned over the three days. If you see me at an event or just walking across campus, please stop me, say hello and ask any questions you may have.

Marietta is a place where students put their dreams into action and achieve more than they ever imagined. Thank you for choosing Marietta College. If there is anything we can do to make your weekend more enjoyable, please ask any of our faculty or staff, and they will assist you.

Bring forth a Pioneer!


Bill Ruud
