Dear Marietta College Community,

It is hard to believe that we have completed eight weeks of the semester, and our annual Fall Break is upon us. I want to congratulate you on all of your achievements so far, and I know you are very deserving of the upcoming four-day break.
I encourage you to enjoy your time off from classes and relax and recharge for the rest of the semester.

Later this month — starting on October 31st — is also when you will begin pre-registering for classes in the Spring Semester. When you return to campus would be an excellent time to reconnect with your advisor to start planning for your spring courses and get the best selection of courses. Make sure if you have any questions at all that you let us know.

For those of you who will remain in Marietta or on the Marietta College campus, come out and support the Pioneers, who will be competing on the athletic fields. Here are some games to consider:

  • Women’s Soccer vs. Capital, 7:00 p.m., Wednesday, October 19th, at Marietta Field.
  • Women’s Rowing vs. Dayton, TBA, Saturday, October 22nd, Lindamood-VanVoorhis Boathouse.
  • Volleyball vs. Heidelberg, 1:00 p.m., Saturday, October 22nd, Fenton Court in Ban Johnson Arena.

Enjoy your break and be safe!

Bring Forth a Pioneer!

Bill Ruud
President and Professor of Management
