YOU are the most important part of Marshall. YOU!
Without you, nothing meaningful happens on this campus. We’re glad you’re here, and we’ll support you in every way we can.
One of the simplest and most effective ways that you can ensure your own success as a student is by attending class. The whole point of the Herd Path Program is make sure that students are okay when they begin to miss classes and to support them in any way that we can as a University. Transitioning to college is not always easy – students fall behind in their coursework, get homesick, get heart-broken, get overwhelmed, etc. We’re all human after all. Missing classes is a first sign that a student is having trouble or is ABOUT TO have trouble in school, and we want to do everything we can to ensure your academic success and general well-being. Most of the challenges that students encounter in their first year can be easily overcome with just a little help.
