Marshall Student Organizations

Marshall currently sponsors six student organizations. Distinct in purpose, each organization gives opportunities for you to explore your interests and passions. The organizations are open membership (no fees or applications required), so you are free to explore and attend meetings and events as you please. You can join in at any time of the year.
