We’re looking for students who want to represent the Marshall in a very fun way… by being Marco!
Marco is seen practically everywhere–at sporting events, university functions and as a “spokes-bison” at selected private events. You could be traveling with one of Marshall’s athletic teams as a part of the cheer squad, you might be representing your university at an alumni reception or you could be helping blow out the candles at a birthday party. You never know what might come up!
Students selected to portray Marco will receive the following compensation:
- $1,000 per semester scholarship
- Free textbooks
- Travel opportunities
- Nike apparel, including shoes
Eligibility requirements to be MARCO
- Must be a Marshall University student.
- Must currently have and maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or higher on a 4.0 scale.
- Cannot have any health issues that could be further exacerbated through the performance of the MARCO character. May be required to pass a physical fitness exam.
- Must be covered by a personal medical insurance plan and an automobile insurance plan.
- Must successfully pass a criminal background check.
- Must be able to commit a considerable amount of time and energy to portraying MARCO. Schedule flexibility is a must.
