Unity Walk to take place Oct. 20

The 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,” is scheduled for 5 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 20, on the Huntington campus.

All students, faculty, staff, alumni, student organizations, athletic teams, fraternities and sororities are invited to take part. Participants in this year’s walk are asked to begin lining up at the Marshall Recreation Center at 4:30 p.m. The 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 community, to come and enjoy this most festive walk with us as we again demonstrate our loyalty, unity, inclusiveness and oneness.”

The Unity Walk is sponsored by Intercultural Affairs, Student Affairs, Fraternity and Sorority Life, Housing and Residence Life and Marshall Athletics.
