About

Writing on the Mall is a blog for students, by students, about what is happening in and around Marietta College.  The idea behind this site is to provide a place for students to talk about events on and around campus, the things we use, watch, and listen, and the talking points of what the student body cares about.

This site has no ties to the college, so feel free to view this as an unfiltered, objective view of college life in Marietta.  A place for prospective students, current students, alumni, and all others to see what’s happening.  A mix of everything will be covered here, but mostly including the things that could or will affect Marietta College students the most.

Our blog’s name, Writing on the Mall, comes from the feature of our college that makes it so recognizable…the Christie Mall.  The bricked path, which used to be an active, bustling street before it was shut down and turned into the pedestrian walkway it is now, represents the intertwined stories that our college holds and breeds, growing from person to person.  You can get a glimpse of our campus, either good or bad, by seeing the things that get chalked on our mall from week to week.
