Pioneers Rise to the Challenge
A transformative college experience begins with our people – students, faculty, staff, and alumni. For more than 180 years, lives have been impacted for the better because of the connections made at Marietta College
For Marcia Lehmann Custer ‘74, it was the chance to study abroad during her junior year that opened her eyes to so many opportunities. Remembering all those people and moments she had as a student, she came up with a way to honor the place that changed her life and career trajectory.
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.
I knew from my first day on campus that Marietta College was not only the right fit for me, but that it genuinely felt like my home away from home.
Service, community, and learning have been at the forefront of my experience here.
