Accounting Professor’s paper published in higher education journal

grace-johnsonMarietta College Professor Grace Johnson’s paper, “Student-Created Assignments in an Undergraduate Accounting Information Systems Course: Student and Faculty Perceptions,” has been published in Volume 13 of the Journal of Higher Education Theory and Practice.

Co-authored with two senior Public Accounting majors, Bethany McFarland ’12 and Rachel Worthington ’12, the study examines how student created assignments — rather than instructor created ones — can strengthen how students understand the topic of internal control. Benefits and drawbacks of using the approach are explored from student and faculty points of view.

New Sports Business Association growing fast on campus


When most Marietta College students travel to Ohio University they’re usually visiting friends or a craving for Chipotle that can’t be satisfied any closer.

But when Kiki Cunningham ’14 (Salesville, Ohio) goes to Athens, it’s all business.

Last fall Cunningham attended Ohio University’s Sports Business Forum, put on by Ohio University’s Sports Business Association. The experience was so gratifying that it inspired Cunningham to create her own chapter of SBA at Marietta College.
