I am so excited to be Director of Recruitment for my alma mater! Helping students make the decision to become part of the Marshall family is the best part of what I do. I am also fortunate to work with the terrific staff of the Office of Recruitment. They are so dedicated to our prospective students, and they LOVE Marshall! If you have questions about what we do or how we can help students, parents, or counselors in the college selection process, please feel free to contact me.
Ella McComas, Assistant Director of Recruitment
As Assistant Director of Recruitment at Marshall University I would like to thank you for expressing an interest in my alma mater. I graduated from MU in 2003 with a bachelor’s degree in Public Relations from the W. Page Pitt School of Journalism and Mass Communication. I grew up in Huntington and a lot of people I graduated with also went to Marshall so one of the best things I did during my undergraduate years was get involved in student activities on campus. When I wasn’t in class or studying, you could find me working on a project with the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) or spending time at my sorority house, Delta Zeta. Whether you are a commuter student or live on campus student organizations are a great way tomeet people and stay involved in campus life at Marshall University. To learn more about student organizations and campus life visit www.marshall.edu/sapb. I would also love to talk to you about the nine colleges and schools we offer here at Marshall University and help you become part of the Marshall family.

Adam Jenkins, Recruitment Coordinator
Northern WV, Pennsylvania
My name is Adam Jenkins, I work in the Welcome Center as an academic recruitment coordinator at Marshall University. From the first time I visited campus, I knew that Marshall had to be my home… the size, campus, location, and faculty all make Marshall a great fit for students who are looking for a school that provides a big enough environment to have exciting things happening, but small enough to retain a personal atmosphere. I continued with my spark of interest in history, and it became much more than I could have imagined thanks to the connections that I built with the faculty here at Marshall. My coursework and professors taught me new ways of critically analyzing, researching, and writing about the world around me. Marshall was a great fit for me, and my job allows me to pass that same experience along to future Marshall students.
Megan Jude, Recruitment Coordinator
Jackson and Mason Counties, WV, Ohio
I’m Megan Jude, Recruitment Coordinator at Marshall University. I am also a two-time graduate (B.A. 2008; M.A. 2010) of Marshall. After attending my first football game at the Joan C. Edwards Stadium, I knew that I was destined to be a member of the Herd. Once at Marshall, I gained not only professional, but life experience that has been invaluable. Whenever I think about Marshall, I will always be reminded of the great times I shared with my sorority sisters in Phi Mu, the supportive professors in the W. Page Pitt School of Journalism Mass Communications, and the lifelong connections forged with my university.

Adam Russell, Recruitment Coordinator
Northeastern WV, Maryland
I’m Adam Russell, Recruitment Coordinator for the Northeast and a graduate from the 2009 class at Marshall. I chose Marshall because, for me at least, it is the perfect size. Campus is compact, and so I knew I’d be able to get from class to class without much hassle. In addition, my class sizes were great. I knew I wouldn’t get lost in the shuffle like I would at some bigger schools. I chose Marshall in about seventh or eighth grade, because I came to Huntington for a Marshall football game and fell in love with the campus and town. Coming out of the W. Page Pitt School of Journalism and Mass Communications, I knew that Marshall had given me all the tools I needed to be successful as I moved on to my professional career.
