How I got Involved with the Marshall Community

As I came in my freshman year as a Spring Admit, I did not know what to possibly get involved in at Marshall. To be honest, I was not even sure what I was really interested in. The environment at USC is one of a kind. You can feel the ambition and drive from everyone […]

The ELC
