I get grants and go to Marshall. I will graduate in may with 2 four year degrees. I take 18-21 hours a semester and work 2 jobs. MCTC is a joke however and the reason the name has been changed is because Marshall was charging the same tuition as being enrolled in the university. Marshall still owns the technical college but charges a cheaper price.

You all are so uneducated. First of all I do not receive any grants because I can't claim independent yet my parents refuse to help me pay for school. I pay myself and my status is Junior. I attended Mctc this year because it was cheaper and the classes I tool do transfer back to the University.. I know people who have graduated from MCTC and make $40,000+ a year. I know people who have bachelors at Marshall in god knows what and they are still working at Krogers,speedway, telemarketing, etc. It's not necessarily about the institution
But about the profession... The focus of your degree.

No, state law required community colleges to separate from four year institutions. Fairmont State and Pierpont are another example. Marshall does not own MCTC. Marshall is a joke. Their graduates can barely tie their own shoes and spell their own names.
For the record, I have a four year degree and a graduate degree, neither were from Marshall.

Yes and probably from university of phoenix or some other stupid online school! Woohoo you have a degree... and hmmm I make more money than you probably do without one. That stings a little. College degrees are over rated and give these "educated " people the false sense of security and a diploma to wave around and try to use it to say they are better than those who do not have a degree. You should hear how people feel who have degrees and how they feel about coworkers with online degrees. Its not equal and they are veiwed as a joke because anyone can do your work for you and you get the credit. Get over yourself we don't care about all your degrees!

No, not University of Phoenix, and not online degrees, but interesting that you would automatically assume that. Marshall is barely a university. BTW, I'm not sure how you would know how much I make? Maybe because you feel like your lousy $23 per hour is the limit in WV? Don't know. I'm in a specialized field, and I make a helluva lot more than $23 per hour.
You seem angry. Did you get kicked out for poor academic performance? If it was from Marshall, that's really sad.

Just so you know, I came here and took a job - one that couldn't be filled by the locals or the recent mu graduates because the company couldn't find anyone else qualified.

Why are you being so nasty to the ones that atleast try. I am a student at that school, and I work very hard and I am proud to say I have been on the Deans list 3 semisters in a row. To get financial aid, you can not miss any school for the first 30 days of class and you have to keep your grades up. Most people looking for a check can't handle that. Just so you know, I was a high School drop out that went back to school at 31 and is getting it together. Please explain to me why that school is not good enough for you but all credits transfer to Marshall. We use the same books that we get at the same store, we have the same classes in the same buildings. As far as Marshall wanting to be seperate, that was a government thing, not a Marshall thing. Marshall will be out $15 million a year in rent money we MCTC moves, so good luck with that. That doesnt count the book sales vending machines and parking fees for the school and the city. And just for the record, I am in the hiring phase at the VA Medical Center. Its good enough for them... let me guess you went to WVU. But its all good, I will waste 2 years of my life to get a "worthless" degree making the money and benifits I earned. I will be thinking of you every time I get that federal paycheck... I love tax dollars

All this person was trying to do was sell a book, get over yourself...

Turd burglar, get over it. Marshall does not own MCTC. The state constitution required the split.
BTW, no, I did not go to WVU.
