Can anyone comment on the reputation of Marshall University and the strength of their business program?

Having sent one child to that institution, I would recommend it to anyone. Had the first electronic computer library in the USA..opened it to the high schools in the region, including Kentucky...is a small university and makes up for all of that with their incredible standard of excellence...
It's drawbacks are the same as WVU...sequestered in the center of a city...if it was the campus of Miami of Ohio, it would be perfect.

Cannot tell you about the business school...if you are a freshman...live in the dorm...the only way to travel that first year...will be that first test of life...

From all I've heard, the business school is very good and does a good job to prepare you for the real world. I've never heard anyone say anything bad about it, but I've had no experience with it myself. Marshall is building two new dorms which will open this fall and the new Rec Center is to open in the first part of '09. Living in the dorms would also keep you close to downtown Huntington and all that it has to offer. Lots of good things going on here so I highly recommend that you give it a try.

I LOVE OUR CAMPUS! I could not ask for a better campus. I would just like better off-campus apartment selections. There is not a more beautiful campus in WV. I should know, ha ha I tried 2 others (Fairmont State, WVU)before I settled on Marshall and I've toured every one in the state (Thanks to the Gear Up Program) It bussed my entire class all over the state touring colleges. The campus is expanding, and instead of doing what WVU by building a completely separate campus halfway across town, we are extending our current boundaries. I have several friends in the business dept. In fact my best friend has dual majors, marketing and finance. He seems to really enjoy it so far and he is a Junior. Most of the business classes are in Corbly Hall, which is 4-5 stories and was build in the late 80's I believe. I would advise you to come here. It really works really well for me.
