Marshall’s third annual “We Are … Family Unity Walk Celebration,” an event created to give all Marshall students, faculty and staff an opportunity to celebrate their unity and the fact that they are all members of the same “family,” will take place at 4:30 p.m., Monday, Oct. 6, on the Huntington campus.
This year’s walk, with an anticipated attendance of more than 1,500 students and alumni, begins at the Marshall Recreation Center at 4:30 p.m. “The Unity Walk” will be enhanced by group banners, cheers, chants and music.
“We are Marshall and we are one,” said Maurice Cooley, associate vice president for intercultural affairs, who was among the creators of the event in 2012. “We invite all Marshall University students, staff, faculty and alumni, along with the Marshall community, to come and enjoy this most festive walk with us as we again demonstrate our loyalty, unity, inclusiveness and oneness.”
All students, organizations, resident teams, athletic teams, fraternities and sororities are invited to take part. The Unity Walk is sponsored by the Student Resource Center, Student Affairs, Greek Affairs, MU Athletics, Housing and Residence Life and the Center for African American Students.
