If you do not come here for Petro, DO NOT COME HERE!!! Marietta College looks nice on the outside to visitors but is terrible once you are here! They put on a really good show with their tour guides that are required to lie. The dorms are terrible. It rains on me when I am using the restroom, hasn't been fixed for 8 months. The food is TERRIBLE! You pay about $600 aa month to eat food that makes you poop as soon as you eat it!

If you come to school for petroleum engineering then the academics are great. However, if it's for anything other than that this school is not worth it. The price is far too high for what you get and the administration seems out to make your lives as dull as possible. Some call it the Harvard of the midwest but they must only be talking about the price tag because it certainly isn't the quality of the education or the reputation of the school. Anybody that I interviewed for after college had never even heard of it. Preparation for the workforce is lackluster at best.

That being said your fellow students will be the best friends you will ever meet. The Greek Life community is amazing and will do more for your career than the college ever will.In my opinion there's no professional benefit to this school. You'll graduate with crippling student debt and only be employed in your field if you graduate from their petroleum engineering program. Other than that you'll have to make due with what you can get.

From the outside looking in,this looks like a beautiful, open minded and brilliant education facility. But please, don't be fooled. Never in my life have I encountered so many depressed, unhappy, venting and otherwise, hopeless attitudes from students as I have here. It's depressing simply to interact with students because most of the comments they make are negative in some aspect. The professors are good people for the most part, but it's the type of system the college embraces, liberal arts education, that creates a tense sense of constant struggle and pressure or failure is close at hand. It's not correct for all classes to be of equal value in relation to your major, or even equal effort demanded, when they are otherwise irrelevant and required. If you must require them, at least give the students a break on them and let them enjoy the liberal education, not curse ever having shown an interest outside of their major. Some professors are too absorbed in the belief that all students must sacrifice all personal time specifically to worship their class and subject, and are occasionally too arrogant or close-minded that any suggestions or hypotheses from students are ignored or rudely cast aside as inferior. This is not the sort of environment and value in our future of America we should be creating; making students feel small with the constant reminders that "they know nothing", if that is so, what is the point of college. Give them self respect, let them know they are at least by this point on their life of some intellectual value and weight. I have had many great experiences here, but equally, perhaps outweighed, far too many poor ones.
