This year’s December commencement exercises also marks the 10th year that the graduation has been separated into two ceremonies to accommodate an increasing number of students who prefer to participate in the fall commencement.

The December ceremonies are especially popular with international and out-of-state students who have completed their studies and are likely unable to return for the traditional June graduation.
