Senior class marshals—among the most prestigious honors here 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 2019 banner to open Syracuse University’s 165th 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.
