Student marshals are selected for their outstanding academic achievement and contributions to student life. The student marshal leads their fellow graduates in the procession to enter the commencement hall.
Graduations have a long tradition rooted in the old English academic ways and that is why faculty and graduates dress in their academic regalia. There is also a Faculty Marshal that leads the faculty procession.
The student marshals for the Spring 2018 commencement ceremony will be announced later in the semester.
