The career center has a lot of options for juniors and seniors and puts on career fairs every semester. There is a large alumni network and within the colleges there are many professors with connections in the job market.

My professors and courses have taught me more than i could have ever imagined. The classes i took exposed me to ideas i had never considered and career options i never would have dreamed of. My time at marshall has been beyond valuable.

Marshall University has its ups and downs but overall i have loved my time there. My professors have been excellent and compelling, and I feel very well prepared for my future. The Journalism school has lost some funding which is frustrating, however, the professors in our department are incredible and really have the professional experience to back up their teaching.
