Senior Class Marshals

Engagement. Passion. Purpose. Connection.

Two students …two voices…chosen each year to lead a class of many…

Senior Class Marshals are Syracuse University’s most committed and thoughtful students. They are distinguished individuals who exemplify the spirit of the senior class, embody One University, exhibit academic excellence, and have excelled during their time at Syracuse.

Each year two students are selected to serve as the all-University student representatives for graduation, while also having the unique opportunity to participate in the following experiences:

  • Meeting with senior-level University administrators to share and offer feedback on their Syracuse experience
  • Engaging in exclusive networking opportunities with alumni
  • Representing the senior class at University-wide events
  • Helping to recommend the 2020 Commencement speaker
  • Leading the Commencement procession

The criteria used to determine qualified nominees include: scholarship, academic honors, student organization involvement, campus and community service, and an essay regarding the student’s experience of One University.
