Homecoming 2022 presented by MUAA

Marshall University proudly extends a warm invitation toward its alumni, family and friends back to campus for its 2022 Homecoming celebration Oct. 29.

The theme, Fun in the Sun, is a nod to the Sun Belt Conference, and plays up the name of our Homecoming opponent, Coastal Carolina University.

This year’s activities will begin early in the week with the Unity Walk and end with our highly anticipated Homecoming football game against Coastal Carolina on Oct. 29. Among the week’s many activities include the annual parade and bonfire (Oct. 27), Picnic on the Plaza (Oct. 28), Homecoming Stampede 5K (Oct. 29), Marshall Alumni & Family Tailgate (Oct. 29) and more.

Campus events are sponsored by the Marshall University Alumni Association, Student Government Association, Office of Student Activities, Office of Intercultural Affairs and others.
