Student & Graduate Reviews

Christina Boland - 12/15/2019
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2019
"Marshall University is an excellent school. The professors have an aptitude for helping their students succeed, as well as a strong desire to watch each of them grow. As a social work graduate, I have to strongly recommend the program; I cannot stress how satisfied I was the entire time with the program, the professors, and the students."

Mackenzie Wright - 6/9/2019
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2019
"Marshall University has a small Social Work program, and for the most part, very dedicated staff and faculty. They do their very best to provide students with the tools and resources to complete the program successfully. With the program being so small, it can be difficult to receive adequate resources from the university itself, but this program is a tight knit community that loves and helps its students."

Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2018
"I adored my experience at Marshall University. In the four years I was there, I was able to work on professional level shows while learning behind the scenes from teachers that truly were experts in their fields. In my extracurricular classes, I was always in a class that interested me, and I genuinely found professors that ignited my passion for their class. The campus is beautiful and really open for any type of person to be themselves at. Truly a wonderful university."

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2003
"I felt the program at Marshall prepared me for my career in nursing. The financial assistance was great and the staff very helpful in navigating the financial aid system. The classes were challenging but attainable. The diversity in scheduling of classes was also helpful."

Jermaine Coles - 11/25/2017
Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2005
"My experience at Marshall University was phenomenal! I was struggling academically at a previous college, but the transition to MU was extremely simple and they honored military credits that were not accepted in the previous school. The professors in the business program were ready to help the students succeed."

Justin Gandee - 3/12/2017
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2015
"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."

SonofMarshall - 7/6/2016
Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2013
"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."

"Tell us about your college experience.I had too much fun and not enough studying, but have no regrets.Would you get the same degree if you could start over?Yes, but I would have stayed and done a Masters program instead of immediately joining the workforce.What advice can you offer other students?Study! Stay focused and know what you want to do."
