Incoming freshmen follow in their parents’ footsteps


While most parents of incoming freshmen fret over whether or not their son or daughter will find happiness at their choice of college, Laurene Huffman ’91 felt confident that her daughter, Elizabeth “Belle” Huffman ’18 (Waterford, Ohio) would fit right into life at Marietta.
