Campus Visit Update

On-Campus Tours are BACK!

We are offering individual family visits with modified tours. Our sessions are limited to help protect your health and safety. Schedule your visit today. We are also offering virtual campus visit sessions to prospective students, who have not yet applied to Marietta, as well as to our admitted students.

If you have scheduled a visit through Marietta College’s Office of Admission, upon your arrival on campus, please park in the spot with your name on the sign. Then call 740.376.4600 and an Admission representative will meet you at your car to provide you with a mask (if needed) and ask you some questions.

Then our campus tour begins with an information session led by an Admission counselor who will provide details about the admission process. For everyone’s safety, all visitors will remain in the same room as other representatives from campus meet to discuss other topics like financial aid, housing and academic opportunities.

Following these sessions, an Admission counselor will lead a campus walking tour. This is a great opportunity for you to ask specific questions about life on campus, dining options and anything else you would like to know about Marietta College.

After you register for a visit, a confirmation email will be sent that includes directions to campus and other important information. Be sure to check your email prior to your visit.

Your information session and tour will last approximately two hours. In the event of inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances, tours will be canceled to ensure the safety of our visitors. You will be notified via email and/or text message if there is a change. Questions? Email or call 740.376.4600.
