Marshall University Reviews
I loved my time at Marshall University! The campus is really easy to navigate, the professors are nice and very helpful. Most have taught there for many years. The football games are so much fun! Marshall fan's are loyal to their team and stick together through the good and the bad. Marshall's academics are great! I've never met a person who hasn't benefitted from their degree from Marshall. Most Marshall graduates immediately land a job upon graduating.
Marshall is one of the more affordable universities in my area. I've gotten many opportunities to improve myself both within my major and outside it. It feels as if a new opportunity of some sort is advertised each week. The professors are, for the most part, very helpful. Nearly all of the faculty and students I have met are friendly. The city it's in has a lot of crime, however, but Marshall has quite a few campus police to make up for this. I recommend Marshall University highly if you're looking for an undergraduate degree!
Great experience and very helpful students and staff! I have been attending here for the past two years and I have enjoyed every second of it. Anytime I have any trouble or questions I have no trouble trying to get help. I am going for my BSN Nursing degree and feel as if I have already learned so much more here than I would have anywhere else. The teachers really take time to help their students and individualize their help when needed. I would highly recommend Marshall University to anyone seeking a great college to attend. I am happy with the decision I made!
