The Boy Scouts of America held a Merit Badge College last Saturday on Marshall University’s Campus.

The Merit Badge College gave Boy Scouts the chance to earn merit badges for meeting basic requirements in a specific field of learning. Scouts were able to participate in up to four of the 52 merit badge events available in the catalog.

“It’s a lot of fun to interact with the scouts and show them what we do and describe, from a fundamental standpoint, how we do it,” said engineering professor, Greg Michaelson. “They were really engaged and had some great questions.”

The catalog included courses for almost every major Marshall offers, as well as a variety of other events. Over 400 Boy Scouts from the Buckskin council, which includes Boy Scouts from West Virginia, Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky, came to the event.
