MARIETTA- Marietta College's Michael Paulus '12 (Woodsfield, Ohio) was recently honored with a $2,000 scholarship from Chesapeake Energy.
Paulus is majoring in Petroleum Engineering at Marietta.
"Chesapeake's support for our program is critical to our ability to continue to turn out graduates that meet the expectations of Chesapeake and the petroleum industry in general," said Dr. Robert Chase, Chair of the Department. "Marietta College is a small, private liberal arts college and is the only such school in the country with a petroleum engineering program. We do not have a graduate program to help subsidize our undergraduate program operations."
Located in Marietta, Ohio, at the confluence of the Muskingum and Ohio rivers, Marietta College is a four-year liberal arts college. Tracing its roots to the Muskingum Academy begun in 1797, the College was officially chartered in 1835.
