“The color guard allows you to create lifelong relationships while performing with some of the sweetest people on campus. We strive to display a welcoming atmosphere and encourage our members to succeed in and out of the classroom. Come and join the Marshall Color Guard!”
Samantha Rose, 2020 Color Guard Captain
“The Marshall University Color Guard is full of talented students from various performing backgrounds providing a visual aspect to the Marching Thunder. As a team we strive to display a welcoming atmosphere to all members both during season and after.
While expecting hard work and dedication, the MUCG allows our members to freely release emotion through movement, creativity, and performance. Members are given opportunities to build lifelong friendships while pursuing our shared passion for the arts. As we grow close through performance and friendships, the Marshall University Color Guard and Marching Thunder will provide the sense of a family into your college experience.”
Tabitha Forman-Combs, 2020 Color Guard Captain
