Every year the John Deaver Drinko Academy hosts or sponsors many events. Of particular importance is the Celebration of Academics held each spring. The Celebration includes these important events:
- The Drinko Fellow Symposium — This event provides a platform for the current year’s Drinko Fellow, a selected faculty member, to present the results of specific research to the university community.
- The Elizabeth Gibson Drinko Honors Convocation — This event is the one time each year that the university collectively acknowledges its honor students.
We also host our annual Constitution Week events in the fall. These include:
- Open Quoits Tournament — Students, faculty, and staff participate solo or in teams of two in a tournament involving Chief Justice John Marshall’s favorite game, quoits.
- President’s Open Quoits Tournament — The winner(s) of the open quoits tournament get to face off against Marshall University’s own President Gilbert in an exciting final tournament. Winner gets bragging rights (and a nice trophy)!
- Robert C. Byrd Forum on Civic Responsibility
- John Marshall Birthday Cake Ceremony
- Presidential Media Quoits Challenge
- WV Supreme Court of Appeals on Campus
