Marcus recently completed a master of education degree in higher education and counseling at Frostburg State University in Frostburg, Md. He also holds a bachelor of science degree in business management from Rutgers University–Camden in Camden, N.J. While a graduate student, Marcus worked for FSU’s Residence Life Department as a hall director and its Office of Student Involvement as a graduate programming assistant. As an undergraduate, Marcus was active with the Black Student Union, serving as president and treasurer simultaneously while serving as vice president for the Campus Activity Board and RU-C president for the Nu Iota Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. In his new role, he joins Sarah in developing and overseeing all co-curricular aspects of student life at DCAD.
