I LOVE Marshall University. With me being in the military, it has been hard to balance college full time with the national guard and my other jobs as well but Marshall's professors have been so supportive and I could not have picked a better college! I have also made friends from all over the world who have become very close to me!

Marshall's leadership programs, I believe, are top tier, and proves its ability to produce student leaders each semester. At Marshall, empowering students to become a leader and to excel in the classroom is often preached. It also offers a large amount of on campus activities. Marshall's campus and history is also unlike any others with its beautiful memorial student center that was constructed in honor of the 1970 plan crash that carried over 75 football players, coaches, fans, and crew. It is truly a special place in the middle of the beautiful mountains of West Virginia.
Marshall University seems like it offers outstanding services in other areas, but as far as COLA goes, it was terrible! I am a psychology major and I literally had to do EVERYTHING on my own. My advisor was absolutely TERRIBLE and the majority of the Psychology staff does not teach anything useful.
