2:47 p.m., April 29, 2013--UD faculty and staff are needed to serve as University marshals at the 164th Commencement ceremony honoring the Class of 2013 on Saturday, May 25, in Delaware Stadium. 

University marshals assist with greeting and seating guests, handicapped and elderly seating, program distribution and student line-up, and they also may need to assist with ushering in the box seat area. Marshals need to arrive at Delaware Stadium before the gates open at 7 a.m. and in most cases are free to go once the ceremony begins at 9 a.m.
