2025 Senior Class Marshal Application and Nomination Now Open
The application and nomination process for the Class of 2025 Senior Class Marshals, an opportunity afforded to two students who will serve as the all-University student representatives for the graduating class, has officially been opened by the Student Experience division. Current Syracuse University juniors, graduating in May 2025, who are enrolled in undergraduate programs and will be on campus during the entirety of their senior year (2024-25), are eligible to apply.
“Annually the honor of Senior Class Marshals is bestowed upon two distinguished students who have excelled during their time at Syracuse University inside and outside of the classroom. These committed students truly embody what it means to be a member of the Orange community through their acts of service, leadership and excellence. We encourage interested students to apply, alongside faculty and staff to submit nominations,” says Rob Hradsky, Ed.D., vice president for student engagement in the Division of the Student Experience and chair of the selection committee.
In addition to leading their graduating class during Commencement, Senior Class Marshals experience highlights include helping to recommend the Commencement speaker, meeting with a senior University administrator to discuss their student experience and offer insights and suggestions, in addition to representing their class at Universitywide functions, networking with alumni and more.
Current juniors can complete the application by visiting the Class of 2025 Senior Class Marshal application page. Faculty and staff may nominate qualifying students using the Class of 2025 Senior Class Marshal nomination form. The deadline to apply is Monday, Feb. 5.
