Marshall University proudly announces its inaugural pop culture and entertainment convention, HerdCon!
HerdCon will be held on Saturday, March 16, 2019 at the Marshall University Memorial Student Center (primary location) and the Drinko Library (secondary location) on campus from 10am until 6pm.
This is Marshall University’s first venture into the pop culture, comic, and entertainment industry. This event will benefit both the community and local businesses by bringing new visitors to Huntington and raising the profile of Marshall University. The show will focus on four major points: Cosplay (portraying fictional characters in both costume and mannerisms), Scholarly Panels (informational sessions hosted by Marshall University faculty), Gaming (computer, pen and paper, board game, and live action roleplay), as well as local and regional businesses. Marshall students, faculty, staff, alumni, community college students, and children under the age of 18 will have free admission.
