- representing the 2014 class at special University-wide events;
- helping to select the 2014 Commencement speaker; and
- leading the entire Commencement procession at graduation.
Applicants should be distinguished individuals who have excelled during their time at Syracuse, exemplify the spirit of the senior class, understand and have experienced Scholarship in Action and exhibit excellent critical-thinking skills. The criteria used to determine qualified nominees include: scholarship, academic honors, student organization involvement, campus and community service and an essay soliciting the student’s suggestions for engaging the SU community in Scholarship in Action.
An online application form, the above-mentioned essay, nominations/recommendations from two SU faculty or staff and a copy of an official Syracuse University transcript are required and due by Feb. 1.
