  • Marshall Day at the Capitol

A special day for Herd Nation!

Marshall Day at the Capitol gives the Legislature a chance to celebrate Marshall’s history as well as its current and future impact on the state. The day also gives alumni in Charleston a chance to champion their alma mater in front of the entire state.

At each event, dozens of tables showcasing what the university has to offer dons the Capitol halls, while the John Marshall Fife and Drum Corps and Marco entertain the House and Senate chambers. Both chambers read resolutions each year declaring the day as Marshall University Day across the state.
