HUNTINGTON, W.Va.—Marshall University President Stephen J. Kopp will give an update on the state of the university tomorrow in Washington, D.C.

Approximately 200 persons are expected to attend what has become an annual event, including the West Virginia congressional delegation and staff as well as Washington-area alumni and other supporters. The program is designed to highlight the university's progress and to showcase the impact federally funded research projects have in West Virginia.

Kopp is expected to discuss the new construction that is now under way in Huntington, including the parking facility on 5th Avenue, the soccer facility on the site of the Veterans Memorial Field House, the new Arthur Weisberg Family Engineering Complex, and the visual arts center on the Stone and Thomas site. He will also address Marshall’s record enrollment over the past two years, the financial condition of the university and private fundraising efforts.

Kopp will be joined by Director of Athletics Mike Hamrick, Head Football Coach Doc Holliday, and Men’s Basketball Coach Tom Herrion, all of whom also will make remarks.
