At Ithaca College, the position of marshal for degree candidates is one of the highest honors bestowed on graduating seniors. These marshals are selected in February for the Commencement ceremony in May. Selected students are, with a few exceptions, the undergraduates who have maintained the highest GPA in their respective schools.
