WV Capitol Turns Kelly Green

Marshall University Day at the Capitol will be held Friday.

MU Day at the Capitol is a chance for Marshall representatives to speak with and greet our state legislature as well as show them what is going on at the university. Delegate and Marshall alumnus Sean Hornbuckle said Marshall is an “economic engine to help and progress our state forward.”

“In my eyes, the purpose of MU Day is to make sure we recognize Marshall and showcase all the things Marshall is doing,” Hornbuckle said.

There are about 35 departments and organizations expected to attend and have exhibits at MU Day at the Capitol. Exhibits will be set up from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the rotunda foyer outside of the Senate and the House doors.

WMUL, the Housing and Residence Life, the College of Arts and Media, the College of Liberal Arts, the College of Science, the Campus Activities Board, Student Affairs, Military Science, Marshall Athletics, University Communications and many other representatives from the university are expected to attend.

“I am excited to see the student groups,” Hornbuckle said. “Those are the people who make the university go. They are the reasons I fight to keep tuition down. They are the reasons I support faculty; so they can give the students their best to succeed in future life endeavors.”

Students, faculty, staff and alumni are encouraged to attend the event.

Due to limited parking at the Capitol, the Alumni Association, Student Affairs and Spring Valley Charter have partnered together to provide a charter bus for those who wish to attend, but do not wish to search for parking. Reservations are first come, first serve.

The bus will be leaving from West Stadium Lot at 7:30 a.m. It is recommended those wanting a ride be there at 7 a.m. to begin loading the bus. The bus will return to campus no later than 3 p.m.
