as a prospective student, you definitely want to make yourself known with your academic advisor. you'll also want to get involved on campus. there is alot to choose from, from clubs to greek organizations. you can definitely find your niche here at marshall.
Bria from Beckley, WV
College is alot different than highschool, you actually have to study. Don't let that scare you because if you put in the right amount of effort, you will do well. Get involved in all the campus activities even if you think they sound or look dumb, you could end up making your closest friends there.
Erin from Beckley, WV
Personally, I think high school seniors should always visit the campus first before deciding on their college. Marshall is located in a convenient area of Huntington, where you can walk almost anywhere you need to go. I would also recommend future student to meet the dean of their college. This is where you can ask any questions you may have about what you will be studying and what will be expected of you.
Margaret from Danville, WV
Go to all of your classes. Although most classes are not mandatory, some professors will give extra notes and explain things more in depth. Also, don't wail until last minute to complete presentations or study. That will only cause more stress which in turn may not work out so great.
Emily from Charleston, WV
Make sure to have you grades and test scores in order. It is important to know what your really want from a school as well. The reason is the number of schools wanting your attention can be very overwhelming. Start looking early one for schools and make sure they have you major. It makes the choice of you final few schools and ultimately the school you chose to go to much easier
Donyea from Springfield, IL
join some clubs, but don't overwhelm yourself. it's really easy to get in over your head your first semester, like a lot of kids do, but ya gotta stick with it. go to your classes and ask for help if you need it.
casey from meadow bridge, wv
Do not overwhelm yourself! I will have been at Marshall for 5 years by the time I graduate. I did not take summer classes every summer, and I didn't take the maximum amount of hours each semester. Take it slow and you will learn so much more. I believe I performed better in college because I didn't let myself get overwhelmed and frustrated.
Ginny from Huntington, WV
Go to class!! You pay for each day you are in class so don't waste your money. Get to know the faculty they are there to help you. Study the material, just when you think you know everything you can end up flunking major tests and exams. Get and stay involved in school functions and activities
