4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Varsity sports on campus offer challenges and evoke pride, but if a student doesn't want to participate they have the option to focus on other priorities.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The most popular two sports on our campus are Basketball and Baseball. These are the two sports that Marietta College excels in the most. Intramural sports are also important on our campus and are played by many students. The Dyson Baudo Recreation Center that we have on campus is extremely accessible to athletes and non-athletes. It is a comfortable environment in which everyone on the campus can take part of.

3 College Student

Athletics: Marietta is more about brains than sports.:)

Many students here participate in a sport during the fall, winter, or spring seasons; however, varsity sports are probably one of the biggest disappointments that Marietta students face. While a few of the teams are strong, many are fairly weak. Part of this could be because of the tough competition Marietta faces in the Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC). Although many of the sporting events are blowouts not in Marietta's favor, students still find it fun to go and cheer on friends and get into the spirit of the college. The crew and baseball teams have received the most recognition when it comes to talent and success, but the cross country and track and field teams have recently become some of the more noticed teams.

Intramural sports are a completely different story from the varsity athletics. Students look forward to each season of intramurals when they get to create their own team, be placed in a league, and compete against other teams, all in the spirit of fun. There are even tournaments where the overall winners get to face the toughest competition.

School Spirit
Marietta is full of spirit. For most students, this was their first-choice school, so they don't really want to be anywhere else. The staff also takes pride in the school; some staff members have been here for more than 40 years! Nearly every student has worn a T-shirt, hoodie, or shorts with the Marietta logo at some point both on and off campus. Students are proud to say that Marietta is where they are working toward their degree and are spending their time. Current students really enjoy educating students who are interested in coming here. Even though Marietta's athletics are not the strongest, students still attend the games and cheer on their friends and classmates as much as possible. It common to see bare-chested upperclassman guys painted blue and white, and girls dress up, as well.
Getting Tickets
Every sporting event is free. Tickets aren't necessary for students-just present your student ID at the gate/door to get in.
