Reminder: Marshall University Day at the Capitol is Feb. 12

BDE_heartstickerMarshall University Day at the Capitol will take place from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 12, in the upper rotunda of the State Capitol in Charleston. More than 34 colleges, schools and departments of the university will take part in the event, which will include tables set up for distributing information, food and giveaways.

“Our theme this year is ‘I Love Marshall,’ due to the close proximity to Valentine’s Day” said Nancy Pelphrey, assistant director of alumni affairs. “And, as always, we will emphasize that every Marshall degree earned is an investment in the future of West Virginia.”

Pelphrey said a passenger bus is available for Marshall faculty and staff who will be participating. The bus will leave the West Lot at Joan C. Edwards Stadium at 7 a.m. and will return immediately following the event. Reservations for the bus are on a first-come, first-served basis and can be made by contacting Pelphrey by phone at ext. 6-3134 or by e-mail at
