2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: huntington itself is bad with drugs

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: they want you money. the newest ones are okay but if you dont get in those you are out of luck

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.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: There is a new recreation center built for the city community and all students of Marshall which is very nice and big. It has everything you could pretty much want in a Rec like a swimming pool, wall ball courts, a rock wall, ect.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've only been at Marshall for a year, but it was pretty good. It has given me a lot of opportunities that I probably would not have had at other schools in terms of classes, jobs, research internships, and study abroad experiences.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: As a freshman, the application process was easy. As a returning student, there were a few loopholes to go through, but wasn't bad.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: During my time at Marshall, I have been lead in so many wrong directions from an administrative standpoint. With that being said, the professors are all very supportive and helpful. As a full time student and parent with a full time job, things can get a little messy sometimes. Having the support of my professors really helped me push myself and that's why I said this school is a community. They want us to succeed. There is minimal information given by admin and financial aid. The offices are always packed and busy. They are understaffed and I believe that's most of the issue. If they had more time for details, I firmly believe they would. All in all, Marshall is the heart of Huntington WV. This school is much more than a college to our town.
