#MARSHALLUTRAVEL

Chances are, at some point, you have seen this little guy roaming around major cities and national landmarks in the U.S. and abroad. John Marshall bobblehead has become a fan-favorite, a symbol of our alma mater, visiting new and exciting places while representing Marshall University. And that, my friends, is where you come in. This summer, we want to see you representing the Green and White in your travels and sharing that Thundering Herd spirit with the world! While on vacation, traveling for business, or just taking a stroll around your hometown, snap a picture and use the hashtag #MarshallUTravel. We love to see those awesome MU travel photos, plus we will be awarding some great prizes and you could be featured in the Herd Heaven newsletter or Marshall Magazine! So bust out your cell phones, dust off that old camera, and get busy sharing your Marshall pride around the globe!

 
 
ALUMNI CLUBS MAKING AN IMPACT AROUND THE WORLD
Any college or university will tell you that the lifeblood of any institution is its alumni and, to a much larger extent, its alumni club network. At Marshall University, we have alumni clubs all across the United States and some being formed overseas. So how do you get involved? Are you interested in joining an existing alumni club or starting one in your area? Check out the Alumni Association's new Alumni Club Central page with all of the information you need to join a club or get one up and running. And if you want to read more, you can check out the brand new Club Handbook and learn more about the goals, responsibilities and strategies of a successful alumni club.
