Join the Marshallpalooza Planning Committee
Marshallpalooza (MPZ) is an annual Thurgood Marshall College event that happens on Marshall Week, Fall Week 7. Traditionally, the event is an opportunity for students to enjoy free rides, games, food, and entertainment. One of the iconic elements of the event is the Ferris Wheel.

COVID-19 Safety and Event Adaptation: We had hoped that the COVID-19 pandemic would be over by Fall 2020. That was not the case. During the past months, the MPZ Co-Chairs and Marshall Professional Staff have been exploring creative and safe means to continue the tradition. We are hoping to provide a social-distanced MPZ experience. Many of the traditional components of the event will not be present, but we hope to capture the spirit of MPZ through the reimagined event.

Join us in making MPZ a meaningful and socially-distanced experience. We are looking for general members to assist the planning, and also for a Publicity Lead and a Food Vendor Coordinator. Applications are due on Friday, January 22nd at 11:59pm PST. Apply at the link below.
