In an effort to showcase the articles prepared for the class, the students produced The Marietta Observer, a magazine archiving features, perspectives and profiles. Using an innovative publishing resource, Calameo, the magazine is available for a quick flip-through, full-screen view or PDF download.
It used to be that Marietta was regarded as just a “business friendly” town, really only drawing in people during the 9-5 day.
That’s not the case anymore. Check out this video to see what a typical Tuesday night could look like for a Marietta square visitor.

In the last decade, Marietta has seen major changes in its public housing system. Almost all major public housing projects have been demolished. So what happened to residents that lived there?
Check out this video to learn a little history about the projects, what the current housing is like, and what plans there are for former public housing residents.
Special thanks to the many people that helped make this project possible: Beth Sessoms, Raymond Buday, Orest Walker, Dawn Wilson, and Chiquita Board.
