The Long Blue Line
THIS IS THE TIME
Marietta is the place
The next generation of Marietta College students are counting on the actions we take during this campaign. Where we finish will rely on how prepared we are to push our limits.
GOAL OF $100 MILLION
A MESSAGE FROM
THIS IS THE TIME is a historic $100 million campaign to thrust our College forward through a rejuvenated commitment to our students, a continued promise to transform lives for the better, and a desire to make the world a better place.
College Experience Begins with Our People
For more than 180 years, lives have been impacted for the better because of the connections made at Marietta College.
I was an ambitious, anxious, first-generation college student from Appalachia who had been homeschooled her whole life, so college was a huge transition for me. The faculty here not only made me feel welcome but also made me feel valued. My experience at Marietta College allowed me to see that I could have a meaningful impact on the world around me.
We are proud to give back to our alma mater and make a significant impact. We invite you to do the same and join us during this campaign. THIS IS THE TIME for everyone to come together to support the forward- thinking strategies of the College. We look forward to helping make Marietta the best it can be.
YOUR OPPORTUNITY TO
Make a Lasting Impact
Every gift to this campaign will make a difference and secure our future as one of the nation’s finest small, liberal arts colleges. We invite those who care about Marietta College into a special partnership to move this bold campaign forward.
Expanding Access to Education Abroad
Ron ’72 and Simi Rinard realize just how life-changing and rewarding traveling abroad and learning about other cultures can be, which is why they decided to endow the Ronald ’72 and Simin Shelton Rinard International Travel Grants Program with a $1.5 million pledge over the course of five years.
Marietta College today announced that it received a $1 million pledge from Peoples Bank to enhance and facilitate the merger between the Department of Business & Economics and the McDonough Center for Leadership and Business.
Titled "This is the Time," the campaign is the largest in the College's history and it has far-reaching plans that include advancing the College's distinctive academic programs and constructing a modern Student Center.
