2023 Senior Class Marshal Application and Nomination Now Open
Each year, two seniors are awarded the prestigious Senior Class Marshal honor, serving as the all-University representatives for their graduating class. The application and nomination forms for the Class of 2023 Senior Class Marshals are now open.
In addition to representing their class throughout their senior year, Senior Class Marshals participate in events, meet with University leaders and lead the Commencement procession.
“The Senior Class Marshal position is a fantastic opportunity to represent your senior class. You work with University leadership and other students to implement positive changes to the school, and you can really make the position your own,” says Class of 2022 Senior Class Marshal Ava Breitbeck, a senior in the College of Arts and Sciences and Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs.
Class of 2022 Senior Class Marshal Morgan Storino, a senior in the College of Arts and Sciences and Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, adds, “Being a 2022 Senior Class Marshal has been one of the highest honors and privileges I’ve experienced here at the University. Serving in this role has allowed me to connect with the campus community in deeper and more impactful ways by opening doors to special events, committee meetings and campus support networks I previously would not have been aware of. I’m incredibly grateful to have served in this position, as it has left a lasting impression on my SU experience, an impression which I will carry with me through my last few months at the University and beyond.”
All current juniors who will be graduating in May 2023 and on campus throughout their senior year are eligible to apply. Faculty and staff may also nominate qualifying students for this honor.
Applications are due by 11:59 p.m. ET on Sunday, Feb. 13.
