What's unique about attending an HBCU like Marshall University?

Hey guys, I'm considering applying to some HBCUs and Marshall University caught my eye. I wanted to ask if any of you know what distinguishes Marshall from other HBCUs in terms of campus life, academics, and opportunities?

Hello! I'm glad you're looking into HBCUs like Marshall University to further your education. Although I don't attend Marshall, I can still give you some insight into what sets it apart from other HBCUs. While every HBCU aims to provide a supportive environment and a sense of community for students of color, they each have their own unique characteristics.

From what I have heard, Marshall has a vibrant campus life with lots of student organizations to join. They have a strong focus on preparing students for successful careers through internships and co-op opportunities. Marshall's strong programs in business, engineering, and nursing might be of particular interest to you.

What strikes me as especially unique about Marshall is the strong alumni network which can provide students with valuable connections and resources for internships and job placements. Moreover, attending a smaller HBCU like Marshall allows for a more personalized experience with smaller class sizes and greater interactions with professors.

I hope this helps give you a better understanding of Marshall University! Good luck with your college search!
