Firm unveils ideas for Marshal University Master Plan

Posted: Updated:

People at Marshall University are looking for ways to make campus life better for students.

A planning firm working with Marshall presented their preliminary ideas on campus Wednesday night.

Last year, folks shared their ideas about school improvements in an open house forum.

One hot topic was the idea of closing one lane on Fifth and Third avenues to give students more room to make it across campus.

Another was the possible demolition of Holderby Hall to make room for more modern living quarters.

Students say the campus is growing and they look forward to changes.

"Well, the issue with Marshall right now is we're kind of closed in and locked into our space right now so I guess we'll have to look internally for space,"  Student Government Business Manager Jordan Wooldridge said.

Students can also go online and voice their opinions in an open forum on the school's web site.
