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

This gave me a whole extra year of experience to better prepare me for my career after college.

It set me on the path to where I am today. Every major has an endless number of roads and directions we can go down toward a particular career and Marietta helped me choose the road that was the best for me.
