Marshall is the heart of the town in which it sits, Huntington WV. Its history is interwoven with the city and the residents eat, sleep, and breath, green and white. After the 1970 plane crash featured in the film We Are Marshall, the community truely came together to become a part of the University. School spirit is nothing short of amazing here and I wouldn't trade my time here for anything. GO HERD, WE ARE MARSHALL!!!
