3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have taken mostly online courses, but the classes I had on campus was in a regular classroom setting with a class no more than thirty.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: There is always a student section at the athletic events while having school spirit by wearing the university's colors green and white.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: If I could start all over with my decision I would still choose Marshall University. I recently joined a sorority on campus to meet new people and to get involved with an organization/club, and to do volunteer work for the local community.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Huntington is a dangerous city, but as long as you don't walk alone, especially at night, you should be okay.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I like that the school itself is small, but it has a large school feeling. The class style depends on the professor, but the clas sizes are relatively small, which I like.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It really depends which degree you get. Most undergraduate students will have to go to grad school to get a job.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I lived in the First Year Residence Halls last year and I enjoyed it. There are study rooms on each floor and Living Learning Communities for different majors. I lived in the Science LLC.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm sure Greek life has its benefits and they do a lot of philanthropic work, but they come off somewhat snobby.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The Herd is well known throughout the country. Fans are devoted, win or lose. There is also a significant sense of school spirit on campus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I knew the moment I went to Green and White day as a high school senior that Marshall was the school for me. It's small enough that your professors care about you, but it also has a large school feel. The university has a family feel that makes you proud to be a part of The Herd. Best. Decision. Ever.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The attendance for sporting events is lackluster but there is still always a strong sense of spirit. Even with all the losing seasons and the comeback story that is Marshall athletics, the spirit of Herd fans have always been strong and well.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The options for worthwhile colleges in the state of West Virginia are limited. However, when comparing the beloved and well-known West Virginia University to Marshall University - Marshall blows the party school out of the water. The campus is flat and contained in a 4 acre square. Students can reach any classroom or professor in ten minutes or less. There is far more of a sense of community at Marshall. It is without a doubt the right choice for me and I'm sure it is for others who are focused on education. The opportunities for clubs and research are limited but I believe as the school continues to grow, more opportunities will arise.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: In my view, it is not a good to drink and possibility of drug chances.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: In my view, professors are excellent in teaching, many special topics offered for students to learn different things and class styles and class sizes are minimum.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: In my view, the value of a degree is the most considered because it is a valuable university.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: In my university, safety services take more responsibility to help to all students. In this university students are very safe.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The social atmosphere is good for living on campus. It helps to feel better to me than off campus students. In addition to, time to be save.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: Most of the times, my university will own the house of a greek organization; in others, the fraternity or sorority, or its national corporation, will own the house and be responsible for maintaining it.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: In my view, it is too expensive for complete the studies. There is no chance to complete study with low fees. In addition, it is a public university but the fee is very high. It is a major problem.

3 College Junior

Athletics: In my university, they provide good support for athletics, because every student involves in this program for increase stamina to support real life.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is a good security system on campus. Crime rates are relatively high for this area, no matter what precautions are taken by the police and safety services.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have had very good experiences with most professors and their grading strategies. I have also had a few very bad experiences with professor's teaching styles, workload, and grading strategies. Some professors, particularly nursing professors, grade on a very unreasonable scale allowing only a small portion of the class to pass exams.

The physiology department is very lacking, in teaching and quality of courses, or at least it was in the spring of 2015.

Class sizes are reasonable.

Greek Life: I have not had much experience with Greek life. It is not well advocated for. It seems easy to get involved, although, I have been told it is unaffordable.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics department is great. There are always advertisements about sporting events around campus and word about it, but as far as student involvement I would not say that students are actively involved in every sport offered. Football is adequately supported by nearly the entire campus, although, many of the other sports have difficulty getting a good crowd to events/games.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My overall experience at Marshall University has been good. My favorite experiences have been the football games. My school is unique due to its small size and loving environment. Although, Marshall's School of Nursing specifically, in my opinion, is organized to set up students for failure. It is extremely difficult, maybe nearly impossible, for students to receive higher than a B on any Nursing 222 exam. The questions are individually worth such a high amount of points that if a student were to miss only 6 questions on an exam, he/she would fail. If I had to choose a reason I would not have chosen Marshall, it is because of the unrealistic expectations Marshall University's School of Nursing has for their students. With a supposed SON graduation rate of 20%, I would have chosen a more rewarding nursing program, had I been given a second chance.
