Student Marshals


Senior class marshals—among the most prestigious honors
at SU—serve as the all-University student representatives
for graduation. They are distinguished individuals who have
excelled during their time at SU and who exemplify the
academic excellence, campus and community commitment,
and Orange spirit of their entire class. The class marshals
carry the Class of 2018 banner to open Syracuse University’s
164th Commencement ceremony.

Marshals for each of the University’s schools and colleges lead
the procession of graduates from each school or college into
the Commencement ceremony. They are selected for their
distinguished achievement in scholarship, academic honors,
student organization involvement, leadership, and collegiality,
as well as campus and community engagement and service.
