4 College Junior

Academics: Business management is a really laid back major, although I wish it weren't. A lot of the classes are too easy.

3 College Junior

Academics: Not a lot of variety in courses and professors can be found sometimes.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I feel the faculty really cares and are helpful if needed. I feel if you get a degree from Marshall it will be worth it. I know several of my family and friends who graduated from Marshall and hold down wonderful jobs and do a good job with what they learned. They are recognized for the hard work and know how exhibited.

4 College Junior

Academics: As a Computer Science major, the workload is enough for you to learn the material and get a solid grasp on the concepts, but isn't overwhelming to the point where you don't have time for other things.

1 College Freshman

Academics: The classes in the education department are a joke. Really they are teaching at sixth grader levels, and they make mistakes all the time. I'm not challenged and i don't think any future students of these future teachers will be challenged either. Clinicals are also ridiculous. You must take many hours out of your week to go to schools and observe, but receive no credits for it, even though its taking time from filling your free time with an extra class to graduate early.
