What is your overall opinion of this school?

I like it here, it gives me a home away from home feeling. I've met some great people here that I will know for the rest of my life. I've also had some experiences, such as concerts, that I will always remember. Life here isn't bad at all, some classes can be a little bit hard though, depending on your major.

Marshall University is like a home away from home. The campus is beautiful and I can get to class in no time. The professor are easy to talk to and access to resources are a breeze. The Memorial Student Center is always buzzing with students around the fountain.

I love the campus and the people around campus. There is always something to get involved in when you have nothing to do. The classes are better than I expected. The professors stay active in your life and they all hope you get better in everything you do.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, marshall is a decent place, reason being is because it not too good at some aspects (off campus housing), but its also not bad either. I wouldn’t rate it as one of the best academically, nor would i rate it the worst. It varies by major (as it would for most schools), for example marshall is better overall for nursing, but not so great for art. It offers a decent education for a reasonable price. It is also in the middle of Huntington wv, also known as “the Detroit of West Virginia” for various reasons (drugs and shootings). The streets are very narrow and it can be easy to get lost looking for the campus, especially if you are not from the city. Even though marshall is located in the heart of a city, it doesnt feel like you’re in one, more like a park. You dont often see non collage student/staff on campus, or if you do they’re walking their dog. Marshalls campus is very safe in my opinion, considering they have their own police department. Marshall is very much aware that they are located in a not-so-safe city, so they are tying their best to make us feel safe. They do this by adding these beacon like things all over campus. You press a button and it sends the police to the location. I dont think ive ever not felt safe on campus except when school is not in session (winter break and such) or crossing the street. As for the shops around campus, there are few that i know of (as in off campus but still near) there is a dominos, subway, wendys, mcdonals within a 5 minute walk if campus. I also know of a movie theater nearby the campus. As for the food thats actually on campus, there not much to say. There used to be two dining halls (buffet), but they closed down the good one (towers) to put in some restaurants you have to spend cash on and not meal swipes. The ‘bad’ dining hall is harless. Many students have gotten food poisoning/ found dead bugs in food (including myself). As if that wasn’t bad enough, they serve the same hing everyday, no variation what so ever, and very little food for the late nighters (people studying late and deciding to get food) Now compared to the ‘good’ dining hall (towers) they had alot of variation , very few food poisoning/dead bugs in food, nicer staff, and plenty of food for the late nighters. As for housing, well they’re alright. Some housing is great (freshman dorms), but after that it goes all downhill. There is towers which has communal bathrooms and one washer/dryer per floor) there Is buskirk (all female) which is similar to towers, then theres this one i forgot its name (starts with a g? Whatever its near the c-store) which doesnt have a/c and communal bathrooms, lastly theres commons. Its the most expensive of the housing and one of the nicest. It has bathrooms per floor along wits its own lobby and you share it with 3 people, but you all get your own rooms. There are also a few abandoned buildings on campus, which isnt good, so overall its decent. Tl;dr Pros: -feels like a park -safe -food -LGBTQ friendly -small classes Cons: -food -location -decisions they made -abandoned buildings

A great school. My family has all gone here and I’m excited for my child to attend in the future! They have amazing programs, and the professors I have had have been extremely helpful. I can’t wait to become an alumni of this school like the rest of my family has!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great school. The staff genuinely care and are here to help us succeed. There's lots to do on campus. The food choices are amazing, including options for students with food allergies or dietary restrictions. The people are great, I've made lots of new friends.

I love going to Marshall. I am close to home and still getting an awesome education. Both my mom and grandad are Marshall Graduates and It was the only school that I wanted to go to.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The size of Marshall University is very overwhelming, the class size and campus size is huge. The staff is not very helpful. Also, the tuition is very expensive and they do not offer many scholarships. If I could go back, I do not think I would be attending Marshall University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My first experiences of Marshall University was as a visitor but my next will be as a student. I attended their Green and White Day and got to look at their dorms, cafeteria and student center. The dorms were in great shape and the sizes were spacious considering it fits two people. The education programs cater to anyone and everyone. Campus security makes safety a priority for each and every student. That's why I chose Marshall University to continue my education.
