Marshall University's 2008 Parent and Family Weekend, observed on October 3 and 4, was highlighted by a nationally televised football game with the Cincinnati Bearcats and several get-togethers across campus, during which students and their parents were able to mingle with and get to know university staff and faculty.
The College Program for Students with Asperger Syndrome held it's 3rd Parents' Weekend Get-Together with a brunch in the John Marshall Room. More than 60 attendees enjoyed the camaraderie, and the terrific musical performances from students.
Chris Tucker, a Marshall University Music Composition major and pianist, played a brilliant rendition of Beethoven’s Piano Sonata in F Minor - First Movement.
Bach’s Prelude from Cello Suite in G Major was played masterfully by Jason Breslin, a Marshall University Music Performance major and guitarist.
The annual Marshall University Trivia game was hosted by freshman Eren Niederhoffer
Eren kept the crowd entertained with his great game show voice and clever wit.
Thanks to each of these students --along with freshman background pianist Christian Carlsson --who made the Parents' Weekend Get-Together a smashing success!
