What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Consider the environment, whether it would facilitate your learning experience or hinder it. You should take time to visit the campus and surrounding area, meet professors, and see what type of students with whom you would be sharing this learning experience. See how focused the university is on what field of learning you will be focusing on, and if you are not sure of what you would like to have as your focus, then see if they have a good career counseling center. Make sure that they have enough extra-curricular activities in which you can involve yourself. Find out how you can balance your social life by inquiring of both their study facilities and what students generally do for fun. Look into the types of intramural sports, clubs, and other activities you can get involved in around campus, which will all help you be involved in the college or university as much as possible. Finally take notice of your ?gut feeling? for the campus. Sometimes there are things that you may not be aware of as unpleasant to you or not fitting to your personality. However, if you feel comfortable there, keep that school on your list of possibilities.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Look for a school that offers a wide variety of majors, unless you already know what you want to do. Talk to your professors, they don't bite and get paid to see you succeed. Also as a student never be afraid to speak up in class. You will be amazed at what a difference it will make on your experience. These professors will also know who you are and can be great resourse when you need recomendation letter after you graduate.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about MU is that the incoming lower classmen seem to have no respect for their professors. This creates sometimes an unconfortable enviroment because it can get in the way of actual learning.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I am currently not frustrated about anything.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Research about the college and go for walk throughs of the colleges. You never really know what the bigger problems will be until you get there. You can always change colleges just make sure of how many credits will transfer and if it's worth it.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

Read, read, and read. You cannnot depend on lectures to get you through, you need to read the books.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

The online classes. Most of my degree is offered online so I can work more hours and learn what I really need to know for my degree.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Marshall University is best known for 2 things: Football and Education. I do believe that I get the best education possible at Marshall and the teachers are always available for you at all times. I've learned alot there and I want to finish my Master's at Marshall.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell parents that every school has partiers, so don't focus on that. Look at the good things that the school or students from that school have accomplished. All schools are expensive but they have options to help paying for it easier and they have their own scholarships so be sure to look into that. Also just because a community college is frowned upon on a resume doesn't mean your child can't go there for a couple years to take the first year of classes there, most of the classes have nothing to do with their degree anyway, so you will be finishing a year of college and only paying 1/4 or less of the tuition. One more thing don't ever tell your child they can't make it in college or that they can decide if they want to go or not, because without a college education they can't make it through life. Always be positive and help them through college, because it's not easy like high school and with finicial strain ontop of that makes you wanna give up so always be positive.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about Marshall University is parking. Theres not enough parking for those who can't afford to buy a parking pass. I have to arrive 1-1.5 hours early for class just to make sure I get a parking meter so that I don't have to walk a mile or two in the dark after classes and I can't afford to purchase a parking pass not to mention when you do buy a pass it's only good for certain parking lots which means I still have to walk a mile or more at night.

Its important to start early to take advantage of all available financial aid and scholarship opportunities. Make sure and take a campus tour and see the dorms or available housing to make sure it meets yours needs. Get involved in campus life and if at all possible stay on campus the first year.

My classmates have, for the most part, seemed shy and quiet at first, but are quick to open up depending on the atmosphere of the class itself and the teacher.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

My advice on choosing a college is to pick one where you can have an equal balance of work and play. You are going to college to get an education, to get a degree and make a difference in the world. But, even the brightest person would go crazy if they didn't have a little bit of fun. Choose a good accredited college that has plenty of opportunities for extracurricular activities as well as an awesome Greek system. I have experience in both of these areas and it is by far a few of the best decisions of my life. The most important thing I have to say about college, though, is to remember why you are there. I believe I have a good method of studying and I get very good grades. However, I have seen many friends fail classes and drop out because they couldn't control their social lives. Don't let this happen to you! So remember, stay focused, be organized, and have good time management, and college will not only be easy, but fun!!

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school is that the campus is so close together. It isn't too small and it isn't too big. I can get to about any building within 5-10 minutes from house. Even though a lot of the buildings have been there for a long time, they are still nice, clean, and easy to work in. A new rec center is also being built which really makes my school even better!

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

The campus at Marshall is contained in a small, but beautiful area. It is not spread out over the city like many other unversities in WV. It is siturated within two blocks of the Kanawh River where concerts are often held on weekends. Students are friendly and it is very easy to get many of them interested in participating in study groups.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

First, be absolutely positive that the university offers a program for your major. Next, review the courses required to fulfill your major. Third, definetly tour the campus or campuses you are leaning toward and experience first-hand what the university or universities have to offer; be especially mindful of the atmosphere, that is, evaluate how you feel when walking around the campus (were you excited, happy, or uncomfortable in your surroundings). Then, weigh the pros and cons of attending this university; consider the financing available to attend, curriculum offered, available housing, available religious services, tutoring clinics, and access to outside sources like pizza parlors, movie theaters, etc. After all, students do need some outside activities to break the stress of academia.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person should be liberal minded and should be previously exposed to a real culturally diverse cross-section of society. People from all over the world attend Marshall and they come from countries like Latin America and the Middle East. Although this is a relatively small campus, it is truly a melting pot.
