5 College Senior

Overall Experience: My professors and courses have taught me more than i could have ever imagined. The classes i took exposed me to ideas i had never considered and career options i never would have dreamed of. My time at marshall has been beyond valuable.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The career center has a lot of options for juniors and seniors and puts on career fairs every semester. There is a large alumni network and within the colleges there are many professors with connections in the job market.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I covered the campus safety beat for the parthenon, not much campus crime was committed. Sexual assaults are rare, as are acts of violence. The campus police are fairly well trained and active; it is very safe.

5 College Senior

Greek Life: I am a member of Alpha Xi Delta, so i am a little biased. I LOVE our Greek Community. The Greek Community does pretty incredible things on and around campus and is only improving. Although we do have plenty of parties, most of them are closed and only for Greeks due to risk management concerns. Marshall's Greek Life does much more than party and has made a pretty big community impact. Also, we hardly have any issues with out of control parties, drunkeness, etc. Everything stays fairly contained and under control.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Our school athletics are great! Everyone gets really involved and goes out to the games. The Recreation Center is wonderful as well, full of equipment to work out and exercise to your preference level

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Marshall University has its ups and downs but overall i have loved my time there. My professors have been excellent and compelling, and I feel very well prepared for my future. The Journalism school has lost some funding which is frustrating, however, the professors in our department are incredible and really have the professional experience to back up their teaching.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: fun the only thing we are known for

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: this is the only thing good about the school

2 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: not safe campus isnt safe huntington isnt safe

1 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I hate Marshall so much. all they want is your money $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great. You are close to everything on campus and you could easily get across campus within 10 minutes (give or take maybe 5 minutes spent on elevators). You get free cable and wifi everywhere on campus so its great. For first year students I highly recommend the First Year residence halls. You have your own bathroom, and its really great there. The first year halls are the best dorms next to commons, which is usually for athletes and honors students. Towers are eh, holderby you have a room to yourself, and buskirk is an all womens dorm.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty cool. I think its half and half on how people feel about them though. Most people only like some frats, or sororities and not some others because they may have had a bad experience with them, or some are known for doing bad things. Greek housing is pretty good they have really big houses, and they are all right next to campus within walking distance. They're actually closer to the buildings that most classes are in than the dorms.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics are very important in the Marshall community. The Rec center hosts intramural sports with many different leagues, competitive, recreational, co-ed, and even fraternity and sorority leagues. On Fridays in football season almost everyone wears a green shirt to support the football team on Saturday too! its great!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are a lot of activities offered, and the campus is pretty compact so your classes are pretty close together which is nice. They do a lot to try to get students more involved like having activities that are offered in the dorms, and even the dining halls.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Everyone on campus helps each other out not matter what, it is a great place to be.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Make sure you have a group of friends that you trust and everything will be alright

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's great, and you make your own fun. You can also cook our own food.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Class sizes are usually really small which is really nice, you get to know your professors and classmates more. Because it is a small university though, there isn't huge variety of classes offered especially if you are in a smaller major.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I was able to get a job very easily, but it was because of a connection with an alumnus.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: On campus it is really safe, but Huntington is a bit worrisome sometimes. Mostly people looking for money or drugs, but if you ignore them they usually won't bother you. After dark though, I don't usually feel safe walking alone.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I live in the Honors dorm which is one of the newer dorms so it is still pretty nice. The rooms in Commons are the best housing, but everything is right on campus and it usually takes less than 10 minutes to get to even the farthest of classes.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm not involved in traditional Greek life, but Marshall has a chemistry fraternity that is pretty awesome.
