Marshall is very close-knit community where everyone is willing to help each other. The schools inside Marshall have relatively low numbers so you are able to get to know other students, which makes leaving for college way harder! In the end, Marshall is a town I wouldn't trade for the world, and I am planning on raising my own kids here so that they can learn some of the core values that I did that make me the person I am today.

Marshall is a very small town and everyone gets to know you, but at the same time its still big enough where you don't know everyone. I have only been here for two years and I love all the different businesses in town that are willing to work with college student's time and budgets. One thing that I think Marshall can improve on is having more parking spaces available on there main street and surround areas.
Marshall has been a decent town to grow up in. However, I would love to attend college in a city where there is much more diversity within the student body. Growing up in rural Minnesota hasn't given me the opportunity to get out of my comfort zone as much as I had hoped, however, it is very peaceful here and the people are always very kind in Minnesota, no matter which part of the state an individual is in.
