HUNTINGTON — Every year on Nov. 14, the hub of student life at Marshall University, the Memorial Student Center Plaza, transforms into a quiet sanctuary.

“A sacred place,” said university President Jerome Gilbert. “The transformation is almost a miraculous one, and it takes place each year by the coming together of people to remember the past and reflect on the memories of our lost loved ones. There is much emotion on this day, and this is where we all want to be on this day at this time.”
