When did you know Marietta College was the right school for you?

After my very first visit to campus, I had a pretty good feeling Marietta College was where I would end up.

Favorite Marietta moment?

When I learned Marietta College was going to start a Sports Management major the spring before my senior year.

Describe what life was like during your time at Marietta College.

Life was challenging while attending MC. The professors pushed you to limits you didn’t think you were capable of, but in the end it made you a more well-rounded and confident person. The friends I made along the way definitely added enjoyment to my college experience.

What impact did Marietta College have on your career?

Earning my degree from Marietta College opened up many doors upon graduation. I started a summer internship after graduation, and once the internship was completed I started looking for more permanent jobs. I had shadowed a speaker from the Sports Management Internship group my senior year, and it turned out he was looking to fill a position around the time my internship was completed.

What does it mean to be a Pioneer?

Being a Pioneer means distinguishing yourself in a crowd. There is a sense of pride you carry to be a part of The Long Blue Line, but you know the hard work and dedication needed to be successful in whatever venture you pursue.
