MC To Start Dorm Construction in March

Students, Faculty, and Staff were e-mailed today to alert them that the new dorm project has officially been announced to the media.  Construction will begin in March.

2010-06-22 15.58.46With the last piece of the puzzle (funding from the Ohio Higher Education Facility Commission) dropping into place, the new dorm project is finally on its way to leaving conceptual drawings.  The new dorm, which has not been named yet, will be built along Putnam and 7th Street, and will form a “cornerstone” of the campus in what is currently a grassy area.

Marietta’s new dorm will follow the trend set by other schools its size in Ohio.  The new living space for over 350 students will feature a mix of living options: specifically, singles, doubles, and apartments like McCoy Hall.  Two singles will share one bathroom, while two doubles will do the same.  But different from McCoy, and original dorm plans from 2008, will be an in-dorm dining option and a health and wellness center.  We have sent an e-mail off to Tom Perry, Director of College Relations, for a better explanation of the health and wellness center.  What we do know for sure is that counseling services will move their offices into the new dorm as part of the center.

Another change with the new dorm design is the exclusion of Greek housing.  The original plan was to take the first floor of each wing of the new dorm, and place Delta Tau Delta and Lambda Chi Alpha chapters in those wings.  It was supposedly a way to get both chapters out of their decaying (and possibly non-code compliant) houses and into new digs.  However, various issues arose, and most Greeks were not for the move.

And if you’re a ‘green freak’ you’ll be happy to hear the new dorm will be built using LEED specifications as guidelines.

Heidelberg University recently started construction on their new dorm, which features many of the features Marietta has placed into theirs.  The major difference is that Heidelberg’s new dorm will be tied into a new Student Center.

DSCF1242With construction beginning this Spring, students may be left wondering where they will be parking.  According to the press release, the Mills and McCoy parking lots will be replaced with a new parking lot where Parsons and Parsons Field are currently located.  Considering that Parsons will still be in operations until the new dorm is built, we could be facing a parking crunch for the next year or two while construction and deconstruction occur.  We have also asked Tom Perry about this, and will publish more once we receive new information.

The new dorm will raise Marietta’s capacity from 1,400 students to 1,500.  MC is hoping to lure students who have moved off-campus back into college dorms, as fewer and fewer homes become available to rent to students thanks to City codes.  Another benefit will be eliminating the need for Parsons Hall, which has been in disrepair for years.  It’s design has also made it susceptible to crime, as we have reported on in the past.  it’s twin, Timlin Hall, was torn down years ago to make room for McCoy Hall.  Timlin was in much worse condition at the time.

Looking Back: Freshmen Greeks Have First MC Homecoming

Editor’s Note:  Welcome Andie West, a Freshman here at Marietta College, to the Writing on the Mall writing crew.  She will be periodically writing articles from the Freshmen perspective, among other things.

Marietta College Homecoming! A week filled with exciting activities, food, and chances for different organizations around campus to show their pride. The week is also an exciting time for freshmen, new to the experience. I had the opportunity to speak with seven freshmen on their first Marietta College homecoming experience. Here are their responses:

Patrick Tegge, a new member of Lambda Chi Alpha, says his homecoming back home is a big deal and was expecting as much from MC. To his surprise, MC did meet his expectations. On asked about his favorite experience he responded: “working on the float at 2:00 am and building a gate to the graveyard with Chuck Bonakoski!”

Pat and his brothers got to work with the local sorority, Omicron Chi Theta, on their float. He said that he was anxious at first since floats at home took 4 months to construct, but despite the lack of time and all of the activities associated with being a full-time college student, the float turned out to be well done. Tegge is very excited for next year’s homecoming.

Elisa Santiago, a new member of Omicron Chi Theta, expected the week to be a lot crazier than it was, but she was expecting to have a lot of fun and bond with her sisters. In addition to sisterly bonding, the Omicron Chi Theta’s experienced inter-Greek bonding with the Lambda Chi. Elisa said making the float with them was a lot of fun. “We forgot to open the windows (At the Lambda Chi house) so that was a headache with all the spray paint!” she said laughing. “Homecoming was a lot of fun and I can’t wait ‘til next year”!

Bryan Murray, a new member of Alpha Tau Omega, was expecting homecoming to be “kinda lame because (back home) cheerleaders and football players were the only ones who cared.” However, the MC homecoming “exceeded” his expectations. “I enjoyed it greatly and loved how much you could participate in and building the float was fun.” The croon was Bryan’s while Blake Alan Johnson jumped rope behind me!” Next year? “I’m excited especially now that I know what it’ll be like I can put more in it and get more out of it.”

Clay Ellenwood, a new member of Delta Tau Delta, figured it would be a pretty long, fun week and was looking forward to meeting a lot of new people. His favorite part of the week: “I think my favorite part was getting to compete in the Greek competition it was something I didn’t expect to be a part of”. Next year? “Definitely excited for next year for more opportunities to get involved and contribute since it’s not so new to me.”

I asked Alex Martin, a new member of Chi Omega, about her homecoming experience and she said it met her expectations. Her favorite part? “Can it be a tie?” she laughed. “There were so many good aspects it’s hard to pick out a favorite!” Her top two favorites were: The feeling of accomplishment after the cheer and her second was the announcement of fellow sister, Jen Kuhn, as queen. Next year? “I can’t wait!” She is excited to participate in more activities in the 2011 MC homecoming.

Mary Roberts, a new member of Alpha Xi Delta, was unsure what to expect from her new home’s homecoming. “I was pumped to do things with my sorority!” Her favorite activity? “Cheer! We are pumped for Greek week already!” Her impression? “A lot going on” but she enjoyed how everyone on campus was involved and showed pride in their organizations. Mary is excited for next year’s homecoming.

Kiki Cunningham, a new member of Sigma Kappa, knew homecoming was going to be fun. When asked if the week met her expectations she responded: “Yeah! It was a lot of fun and seeing how much pride everyone had for the school.” Her favorite? “The cheer and croon because I liked seeing what everyone came up with because everyone was so different.” Kiki is already excited for next year and uncovering the theme and how it’ll play through.

All in all, the freshmen experience of homecoming was positive and exceeded all their expectations. From the cheer and croon to amusing float stories, the MC 2010 homecoming is one to remember for our freshmen.

WATCH: Greek Week Lip Sync Rocks Fenton Court

As the semester draws to a close, only three things are guaranteed:  Finals, Doo Dah Day, and Greek Week.  And the last item is this week.

Greek Week 2010 kicked off on Saturday with Community Service Day, but the week’s biggest event was Sunday night in Fenton COurt.  Lip Sync, the most highly coveted Greek competition, brought five of the six chapters at MC to the stage.  The chapters were given the task of finding songs between the late 80’s and 1999 (The Nickelodeon period, I guess you could say), but there was no actual theme for the night.  However, most chapters followed the Greek Week theme, which is Nickelodeon.
