Green and White Day Open House to take place Feb. 18

Marshall will host its first Green and White Day open house event of the spring Monday, Feb. 18.

"Our Green and White Day events are a great opportunity for high school students to discover all that Marshall University has to offer," Marshall Provost Dr. Jaime Taylor said. "We feel that if we can get the students on campus, they’ll want to join the Marshall family."

At the Green and White Day students and their families can speak with Marshall’s award-winning faculty, one on one, and learn more about exciting academic majors and careers they may not have previously considered.

Green and White Days have taken on a special importance at Marshall as each academic unit is charged with helping the university attract even more students. The emphasis on each open house event is to expose prospective students to as many academic majors and programs as possible. Some students may know what their future holds and others, not so much. This format, during the academic showcase, allows the students to visit with many different possible areas of study.

After the academic showcase at the Marshall Recreation Center, students are given the opportunity to take tours of the Huntington campus, have lunch in one of the dining halls and visit residence halls.

While on campus, students also will hear from Marshall President Dr. Jerome A. Gilbert, as well as Student Government Association President Hunter Barclay and Vice President Hannah Petracca.

High school seniors can apply for admission to Marshall at the event and have the application fee waived. And if they are already admitted, they can submit their enrollment deposit to receive an exclusive #OneOfTheHerd sweatshirt.

Students can register for the Feb. 18 Green and White Day or the upcoming April 9 Green and White Day by visiting
