Welcome to Beckley!
Welcome to the Southern Coalfields MU Alumni Chapter!
We help serve members of the Herd in the greater Beckley, West Virginia, area. Take advantage of the opportunities to get together, meet alumni, network, rekindle old friendships and, most importantly, promote our alma mater and have fun!
WHAT IS AN ALUMNI CHAPTER?
An alumni chapter is a group, under the guidance and direction of Marshall University, that provides engagement opportunities for alumni in a specific area or through a particular area of interest.
WHY FORM AN ALUMNI CHAPTER?
Each chapter has its own unique character, but they all serve to connect alumni to Marshall. Individual chapters host university speakers, sponsor game watching parties for MU sporting events, cultivate relationships with prospective local students, fundraise for scholarships and other projects and provide opportunities for fellowship and fun for their members.
There are four shared principles for alumni chapters:
- Student Recruitment & Enrollment
- Professional Mentoring & Networking
- Fundraising & Scholarships
- University Support & Fellowship
