Marshall University – The School

Our students attach high value to our small class sizes, having faculty members actively instructing in the classroom, the availability of intensive advising,  exceptional student success resources, modern facilities, a growing global community and robust extracurricular programming. Our faculty members are leaders, mentors and cultivators of talent. They are making a real difference in the lives of our students, many of whom arrive here with enormous potential but lack a reliable roadmap for academic accomplishment. Our alumni are the heart and soul of the Marshall family. They have gone on to lead Fortune 500 companies, win Pulitzer Prizes and become captains of industry, science, education and the arts. Here are some Quick Facts about MU.

Marshall University – The Community
