About the J.L. Marshall Business Community

The J. L. Marshall Business Community is a unique setting designed for first year students interested in programs within the Gordon Ford College of Business. Student academic success is supported in the residence hall through programs and other initiatives that link classroom lectures with hall programming, peer tutoring, advising, referral services, and special opportunities to interact with faculty members and university staff.

  • The J. L. Marshall Business Community has 2 courses reserved for participants and students are pre-registered for a Business University Experience course (BA 175) section and Professional Speaking (COMM 161). You will still need to meet with your advisor and register for additional courses.
  • The J. L. Marshall Business Community is located in newly renovated Pearce-Ford tower where other living-learning communities are housed.

If you have questions about how to register for these reserved courses, please call the 270-745-3290. If you have questions about the J. L. Marshall Business Community please call Housing and Residence Life at 270-745-2037.


The Gordon Ford College of Business is a top business school with dual AACSB accreditation in both business and accounting programs
