What Students Are Saying

3.87 Average Rating
a great mid-size university with numerous course offerings and majors. you can enjoy the smaller university atmosphere while having access to the amenities of the city of huntington wv. while small. there is a multi-cultural feel and it is one of the most handicap accessible universities in the state.
Amanda from Le Roy, WV
marshall university's campus is small enough to engage with your professors, yet large enough to meet all standards of diversity. its quaint charm also matches its southern hospitality. from the classroom to sporting events roaring with thundering herd pride, you'll be sure to enjoy the marshall experience.
