What is your overall opinion of this school?

Attending Marshall University is a family tradition - my grandmother attended for her degree in education, my mom and aunt both attended for a degree in education, but I was extremely reluctant to go to Marshall. Not because I wanted to end a "legacy," but because I felt that the academic program in my particular field of study, Liberal Arts, was not up to what I would like it to be, and to a degree I was right. While my professors for my Latin, Greek, and Classics classes are fantastic, there are only two and our budget is forever shrinking to the much more well-funded and advertised STEM programs and majors on campus, as well as the Athletic programs. For being the only place of higher education in the state to offer a Classics or a Latin program, it's shocking and saddening to see how little it is appreciated, especially with such well-respected professors in the Classical community. Marshall is a smaller campus, and certain general education classes will be pretty packed, but Huntington is a wonderful community; I've grown up in the area for my entire life. Marshall would be the best bet for a student wanting a quality STEM education, especially in forensics or engineering, the two most highly-regarded majors at the university, while also looking for a school and area that won't rack up much debt. Plus for all those sports fans, the football stadium is right across the street for most dorms and the Rec Center is really top-notch.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I am very proud of my university. The campus is beautiful and comprised of many interesting buildings and facilities. I love that the newer ones are sleek, modern, and comfortable, but the old ones are historic and fascinating! Every professor I have had or talked to have been incredibly warm, friendly, and knowledgeable -- I haven't a single complaint about my instructors. Similarly, most of the students I've encountered have made me really proud of my community and generation. There's a lot of variety and diversity, but they're genuinely quite intelligent and approachable. On campus, we have access to some wonderful restaurants without having to travel far from campus. There's Pizza Hut, Starbucks, Chik-fil-A, and a variety of local landmarks. We have access to free counselling and transportation, and a lot of the local businesses provide student discounts. I would say that the worst part about Marshall is the paperwork and registration process. I had some bad experiences with the College of Education and specifically with my advisor. Textbooks and tuition are costly, but it could be a lot worse. The city of Huntington has a very troubling drug problem, which often results in crime. And worst of all, the university administration do not seem very supportive of sexual assault victims. Their attitudes toward sexual assault and rape culture MUST change.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Marshall University is an excellent school, especially for those who feel like they want to express themselves to their best ability. It is an extremely tolerant and accepting environment and deeply encourages its students to pursue whatever makes them happiest, including the arts, which are known to sometimes be swept under the rug in favor of sports at lots of colleges.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus is small enough that no one who lives on campus has to drive to class. It's close to a lot of restraints and stores. The people and teachers are kind and helpful. The library has a lot of resources. The food is not the best but is still good. Tuition is a little expensive, but it's a great school. Huntington is an overall nice town.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

While Marshall has its positives and negatives, it is an overall decent college. One positive is that the campus comes together as a community and people are always helpful. Some downfalls are that there is a high rate of crime surrounding the campus, just really common in Huntington. Another negative is that the college claims a wide range of diversity, while it is not very commonly seen while on campus. Lastly, the campus dining hall is expensive overall and the food is not good.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Marshall University is an outstanding University. The professors care greatly about the students and often staying after hours to ensure student needs. Campus is centrally located in the downtown area. It is very easy to get to shops and restaurants, and the city its self caters to Marshall University Students. Marshall University is truly a unique experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The best. decision.ever is to transfer! Dangerous place to live and the admin staff do not communicate. They're "standards" are so high that unless you make A's across the board you can't quality for government student loans. If you can get past the nightly shootings and meth users you may be okay. I'm a student with disabilities and they made so many mistakes! So glad to be leaving

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Big school, in a small town. Not really much goes on off campus. Everyone knows of everyone which is cool, and no one is a stranger. Super friendly people. One cool thing if the village which is the campus apartments, they're extremely nice and walking distance to rec and stadium.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really like Marshall University. When I first stepped on campus I knew that this was where I wanted to go without having to tour. It feels like a second home and I feel welcome no matter where I am. Marshall University was the best choice I could have ever made.
