An opportunity to work with others
toward a common goal characterizes
Marshall's wide variety of social
and interest groups . . .
PRESIDENT PHILIP CLINE
The Marshall College Student Government is similar to that of
the United States Government in that it is composed of three
branches-the Executive, the Legislative, and the Judicial. It represents all members of the Student Body and provides an instrument
which makes it possible for all students to have a voice in campus
Among its many worthwhile activities are the awarding of four
scholarships each year to deserving students, the sponsoring of a
leadership camp each summer for campus leaders and faculty,
contributing to Life Planning Week, and planning and sponsoring
many social activities such as Homecoming, the Junior-Senior
Prom, and a Spring social function or dance.

Fagus, senior women's leadership honorary, selects its members during the second
semester of their junior year, and selection is based on leadership, character, and
intelligence. Activities for the group this year included selling tissue shakers at the
Homecoming game, helping with freshman orientation and attendance at convocations, and assistance with high school visitation .
The honorary was founded on Marshall's campus in 1950-51 by a group of Huntington women who belong to Mortar Board, a national senior women's honorary.
The purpose of Fagus is to assist the college administration in their activities and to
initiate new programs.

omicron delta kappa
Omicron Delta Kappa, men's national honorary leadership fraternity, does not believe in permitting its members to "rest on their laurels ." It demands an active participation in various projects for campus beautification, honoring of fellow students,
aiding the college administration, and others .
ODK, founded in 1914 and brought to Marshall in 1947, endeavors to serve Marshall actively, despite the fact that its members are already among the busiest men
on the campus.
This year, president Jack Egnor, also a member of the Men's Concert Choir, helped
co-ordinate a plan by which the choir and ODK could combine to raise money for
an ODK scholarship fund and a touring fund for the choir. The first annual
Marshall Minstrel show was staged with the Concert Cho1r providing the music a~d
the members of ODK serving as end men.
Membership in Omicron Delta Kappa is probably the highest honor that male students can achieve at Marshall.
