Hello My Name Is

Tom Duval, coordinator for intramural and club sports and facilities at BU, is one of 80 faculty marshals working to make sure that the main Commencement ceremony runs smoothly. Armed with a two-way radio, Duval is responsible for lining up and escorting approximately 1,300 degree candidates from CAS, GRS, and UNI in the processional onto Nickerson Field — and supervising a slew of student marshals.
