Christina Boland 12/15/2019

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

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.
