Your @MarshallU Connection

Hello! My name is Alex O’Donnell, and I am the Recruitment Coordinator for the North Texas (Dallas-Fort Worth) region and proudly living in the area. During my time at Marshall, I participated in many different parts of student life, like student government and Alpha Kappa Psi. Marshall takes the amenities found at bigger universities and combines them with the atmosphere of a smaller liberal arts college – all at a great value (especially for students from Texas).

I wholeheartedly believe that there is something for everyone at Marshall, so I encourage you to come visit our campus and meet our Marshall family in person. Go Herd!

Wild and Wonderful West Virginia

Home to some of the most beautiful areas in the United States, West Virginia has many different outdoor activities to enjoy within a short driving distance of Marshall University’s Huntington campus.

The Gauley River, 25 miles of whitewater with several class V rapids, has been designated as a National Recreation Area, and the neighboring New River Gorge, a National River, is one of the oldest rivers on the continent and full of rugged rapids that flow north through deep canyons.

Other activities you can be a part of throughout the Mountain State, include hiking, boating, golfing, and skiing. No matter your adventurous taste, the state’s mountainous landscape has something for you.
