Faculty Marshal Participation Information:
- Overview: During the ceremony, when tapped by the ROTC cadets, marshals stand and walk the students along the designated path to the stage. Once a student crosses the stage on your side, meet them at the front of the stage and guide them either back to their seats or out of the ceremony venue depending on the ceremony.
