I love Marshall for many reasons. First, I love the security of the campus. Second, everyone is friendly, one doesn't run into a mean person. Lastly, I love how successful I feel at the end of the day. I have already learned a lot of information.

Overall Rating

I really enjoy how everybody is so involved and has created a close-knit community all throughout campus. Even as one goes through campus, people they do not know say 'hello' and are apt to make friends. It is a comforting feeling.
