Each year the University selects a number of outstanding undergraduate students to serve as marshals for campus events and lead academic processions, especially commencement ceremonies. These full-time students serve an important role for the University by assisting at plays, lectures, concerts, and other public occasions. New marshals are chosen at the end of their freshman year from those who have compiled an outstanding grade point average. Marshals are honored in the fall of their sophomore year at a luncheon hosted by the University president and serve for the remaining three years of their FMU career. Marshals wear distinctive blue blazers with the University logo.
