HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Marshall University announces its first Bridal and Special Event Expo from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 19, on the university’s Huntington campus.

The event will take place throughout the university’s Memorial Student Center with exhibits available for any wedding or special event, according to William “Tootie” Carter, business manager for the student center.

“Marshall University is known throughout the state for many great things, but we really are one of the area’s best kept secrets when it comes to our facilities and what they can offer to our community,” Carter said. “We have newly renovated rooms that would be perfect for a small holiday party or even a large wedding.”
