Marshall University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (5)
Marshall University provided a good college experience. The biology program was very manageable and fair, and the faculty in charge were friendly and available for assistance. The program was robust enough to provide me a good background for going into medical school, and flexible enough to allow a relevant shadowing experience as a capstone project instead of a research paper.
Relatively small cohort in one of the larger departments in the College of Liberal Arts. The classrooms that you will use as a history major are very dated, with the exception of the seminar room. Most faculty are friendly, helpful, and will forge a personal relationship with you if make the effort to attend class and show an interest in your work. Most classes were not particularly challenging. The sophomore and senior capstones are engaging and expose students to the skills that historians will utilize in graduate school and in their job. The university alumni base is relatively small and scattered once you leave the Huntington area, in some areas of West Virginia it is nearly nonexistent. The campus is easily walkable and although it is compact, it feels much larger and far removed from the surrounding area once you are inside and can not see the rest of the city. Huntington is a depressed area and the college is near a bad part of town, but the campus is safe.
It was a great school. Met lots of cool people and made great friends. Fun school to go to. While it is a smaller school, it's football culture is huge! Lots of fun
Good program, poor teaching skills in the accounting program.
I had too much fun and not enough studying, but have no regrets.
Yes, but I would have stayed and done a Masters program instead of immediately joining the workforce.
Study! Stay focused and know what you want to do.
