Junior Family Weekend


Commencement Director Stephan Magro discusses commencement traditions with parents.


On Friday, March 1st, the Marshal’s Office was one of several Harvard departments to host an Open House during Junior Family Weekend. The weekend is open to families of Harvard College juniors and provides an opportunity to experience Harvard College from a student’s perspective by attending classes and engaging in discussions with faculty members as well as touring the vast resources of the Harvard Libraries and Museums.

University Marshal Margot Gill shares the role of the Marshal's Office with parents.

Visiting family members and students were invited by the University Marshal to tour Wadsworth House, Harvard’s second oldest building, and to learn about Harvard’s history. Families enjoyed learning about Harvard’s Commencement traditions and were inspired by the photo gallery of notable Commencement speakers and honorary degree recipients.
