Homecoming 2016 a success!

With ideal weather and a record number of people registered for events (627), Marietta College’s 2016 Homecoming weekend was a huge success.

Many alumni and friends of the College returned to campus a little early as they either participated in or wanted to witness the inauguration of Dr. William N. Ruud as Marietta’s 19th president.

Cleveland Rocks!

With over 72 alumni, parents, grandparents, and friends of Marietta College present, the kickoff to the Cleveland and Northeast Ohio Regional Association was a hit! Hosted in The Hermit Club at the Hofbrauhaus in Cleveland, the August 17 event brought The Long Blue Line together from around the region. The turnout was possibly the largest ever for a Regional Association kickoff event!

Dr. Bill Ruud, 19th President of Marietta College, along with Angela Anderson, Vice President of Advancement, and Larry Hiser, Athletics Director, provided exciting updates from campus.
