Marshall University fans can show their support and pride for the Thundering Herd by wearing their green Marshall gear every Friday throughout the football season.
The university kicks off Green Fridays this Friday, Aug. 31, with participation in the eighth annual National College Colors Day. Fans across the nation are encouraged to wear their college colors and support their favorite university.
College Colors Day, organized by the Collegiate Licensing Company (CLC), coincides with “back to school” and the kickoff of intercollegiate athletics. By participating in College Colors Day, Marshall is continuing a tradition of encouraging members of the Marshall community to wear their Marshall gear on this special day.
The university continues the Green Fridays promotion throughout the season. Marshall University employees and students are encouraged to show their pride on campus by wearing green each Friday.
In addition, employees of local businesses may take part in a contest in which they wear their Marshall gear and have the opportunity to win prizes from the university. Any businesses wanting to participate must register with Mallory Jarrell, Marshall University Marketing and Branding Coordinator, to be eligible to win. Businesses may register at www.marshall.edu/greenfridays.
Businesses need to submit their location and the number of participating employees. A winner will be chosen every Friday before a home football game throughout football season.
