Marshall’s Mid-Ohio Valley Center to host open house


Marshall University will welcome prospective students in an open house at its Mid-Ohio Valley Center in Point Pleasant on Thursday, Jan. 11.

Prospective students who attend the open house will receive information about program and class offerings at MOVC and will have an opportunity to meet and interact with faculty and staff.

Sheila Fields, director of the MOVC, says the ability for students to take Marshall University courses without the need to relocate to the university’s campus in Huntington is a big draw.

“Attending classes in Point Pleasant is a great opportunity for many reasons,” said Fields. “Smaller classes, convenience, being close to home, cost (no room and board or travel), and students with jobs or families can still be home.”

Currently, the MOVC offers all classes for the following programs: bachelor of science in nursing, bachelor’s and master’s degrees in social work and regents bachelor of arts, among other offerings.

The open house will be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and is free and open to the public. Media are invited and encouraged to attend.
