    Enjoy your visit. Marshall is a wonderful school to attend and the people are very friendly. I enjoyed my years there more than I could ever describe.

    I second the motion of those above: watch out for cops. There are a ton of speed traps in SE Ohio.

    My mom is in a Marshall PhD program. She just took her first class today and seems to like it. She said it's kind of small, though. Don't know if that matters to you or not.

    While you are there I would recommend checking out the Marshall Hall of Fame Cafe in downtown Huntington. It is owned by the same guys that run the Buckeye HOF Cafe and has a lot of cool Thundering Herd memorabilia; it will give you a sense of what MU sports are all about and has pretty decent food.

    I go to a D-6 football school, my school is K-12 in one building, and it was HUGE compaired to it. I loved it! I was offered a $3,500/year Scholarship based on grades alone! It will be around $14K a year now. Maybe I could get more on like a partial football or something, seeing as I'm 6'4" and 298 lbs. And I have pretty decent footwork. I would love to play for them, I plan on attending no matter what! And try walking on if I don't get a scholarship. The campus is awesome! I love the cell phone deal they have now, and the 20:1 student to teacher ratio is awesome! I love the scenery and I really believe that I would fit in just great down there! And can't wait to start in the fall of '08 hopefully!

    Marshall has a great campus. Watch out for the drunks and druggies though they're every where. Some guy tried to sale me weed in Huntington last year.

    They are! They are tearing down the two oldest ones though to make two new ones. I cannot remember the names, I'm thinking one was called Dobb's or something, I'll do some research and find out!
