• 2017 University Commencement

    Commencement Marshal Registration

    Commencement Marshals (7:30 am – 12:00 pm)

    Commencement marshals are responsible for moving our faculty and graduates from the marshaling area at the stadium out onto the field and into their seats. It is a tremendous honor to be “up close and personal” when our newest graduates see 40,000 people cheering for them and their accomplishments. Of course, amid all of this exuberance, it’s also necessary to keep the graduates moving along swiftly and safely to their seats. Since there is no rehearsal for University Commencement, it is only through the efforts of the Commencement Marshals that this pageantry is completed. There is training at the stadium in the days leading up to the ceremony, special parking at the stadium the day of the event, and breakfast prior to taking your spots on the field. Your name is listed in the ceremony’s program and a thank you gift is provided at the end. This truly will be a once in a lifetime event for the graduates and their guests, and we hope you will be a part of it.
