Marcolian Round-Up!

A new school year brings us a new Marcolian…or at least in paper form.  The Marc website has not been updated to reflect the new stories.

If you’re looking for another helpful student media, the Marcolian is less of a newsy paper (usually runs every other week, but that may be changing) and more of a magazine.  They cover big campus events, but tell more of the story than just telling you what happened.  There are more editorials and opportunities for students to speak their mind and get their point across.

Headlines in this week’s Marcolian:

  • Matriculation Ceremony takes place tonight
  • Marietta College ranked 112th in Nation
  • MC Students travel to Central America
  • Planetarium community events scheduled for August, September
  • Soccer coach expects greatness
  • Football team prepares for season of growth
  • Local Churches
  • Student Discounts
  • Fine Arts on Campus
  • President welcomes Class of 2013
  • Senior gives prospective on summer
  • Del Mar’s Baja Grill disappoints
  • Freshman offers fresh perspective
  • Campus Organizations
  • Cable Channel Guide

Writing on the Mall will be posting a few more guides now based off of a few of the Marc articles (Church Guide, Campus Organization Guide), but already has guides featuring the Cable Channel Listing (which was updated today to include digital channels for those with Digital Tuners), Area Concert Guide, and more.

And as a side note, Del Mar’s is really tasty (in my opinion) so I disagree with the Op/Ed saying that it lacks flavor and experience.  They just opened, they’re still training and hiring.  Cut them some slack.  And I think its tasty and flavorful.  But make your own opinion.

Pick up a copy of the Marcolian today to read all of the articles they have this week.

Marietta College Ties for 6th in the Midwest!

DSCF1146The US News and World Report: America’s Best Colleges list is finally out, and Marietta College tied for 6th place in the Baccalaureate Colleges – Midwest Region.

While it did not beat out all other OAC schools like in the Forbes Poll (Ohio Northern University was second to Taylor University), it did beat out #33 Wilmington College.  No other OAC colleges were ranked.  Marietta was tied for 6th with Cedarville University and Huntington University.

Marietta was also included on the list of schools with International students (9% of campus population), economic diversity (26% of students obtain Pell grants), diversity (index score of .13), and retention (73.2% freshmen retention).

Once again, another ranking of colleges, another great day to be a Pioneer!
