Marshall University Reviews
We are family at Marshall University! The atmosphere is amazing, which as a student makes me feel like I am a part of something very special. Marshall is very student oriented, and since the university offers hundreds of clubs and organizations, there is something for everyone, no matter their interests or passions. I genuinely believe that every staff member and professor truly cares about their students and is there to help them grow and achieve their personal and educational goals! We are... MARSHALL!
My experience at Marshall so far has been extraordinary. I have been very involved in student organizations and have been keeping up in all my classes. Coming out of state was somewhat challenging the first few weeks, because it seems like a lot of people here are from West Virginia, but the students have all been welcoming. In high-school teachers would tell me that the professors don't care and you are just a number, but that is not the case here. The professors will help you as much as you ask, as long as you are not a troubled student in class and show up. What I would like to be changed here at Marshall is the amount of places to eat on the campus. Your choices are somewhat limited if you are a picky eater like me!
Coming from out of state I was nervous about starting at a new school, especially college. After completing my first year I couldn't be happier! Marshall University makes it effortless to find friends. Across campus, there are numerous places you can go whether it be for studying, grabbing something to eat, or simply hanging out.
