Traditional Homecoming Returns in 2021!
Alumni, we are thrilled to welcome you back to campus for Marshall Homecoming 2021, with the football game on October 9, 2021, and a 2 p.m. kickoff. We hope that you are able to reconnect with friends and faculty, visit some of your favorite spots around campus and the community, as well as see some of the ways we continue to grow.
Huntington, you make this a great place to live, work and study and we are proud to call this community home. We want you to know that you are invited to celebrate homecoming with us because what you give to the university and its students is a significant part of the Marshall experience.
