I chose Marshall because when I stepped foot on campus I knew I was home. I was interested in their Forensics program since it is such a fantastic program. Four years later and I still don't regret my decision.
I absolutely love my classes. It took me a while to adjust to the college classes but once I was actually able to get into my major classes I have been exposed to so much content that will be beneficial for my future career in Forensics.
