The Sun — Cal State San Bernardino will graduate an expected 2,907 students on Saturday. It won’t be the first time this month for many of them.

On Saturday, the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences will award degrees to an expected 1,039 graduates; the College of Art and Letters and the College of Education will award an expected 475 and 115 degrees in a joint ceremony; the Jack H. Brown College of Business and Public Administration will award an expected 661 degrees; and the College of Natural Sciences will award an expected 617 degrees in their commencement ceremony.

But earlier this month, Cal State San Bernardino held six special ceremonies for 2017 graduates, including an African-American Graduation Recognition ceremony, a special ceremony for students with disabilities, a Dreamers Graduation Ceremony for undocumented students, a Latino Grad Recognition Ceremony, a Lavender Graduation Ceremony for LGBTQA students and a Veterans Graduation Ceremony.

The article was published June 15, 2017, and also appeared in other Southern California News Group newspapers.
