Each year, departments and programs from across GSAS nominate graduating students who have contributed meaningfully to student life to serve as Commencement marshals.
The eight outstanding students selected as 2015 marshals by a committee of the Graduate Student Council will lead the GSAS Commencement procession down Oxford Street and into Tercentenary Theatre in Harvard Yard for the Morning Exercises, carrying the GSAS, SEAS, and Dudley House banners. They are traditionally the first Harvard graduate students to enter the yard each year.
