At 9 a.m., the College of Business, Industry, Life Science and Agriculture graduated 210; at 12:30 p.m., the College of Liberal Arts and Education and the School of Graduate Studies had 150 undergraduates and 131 received masters degrees; and at 4 p.m., the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Science graduated 203.
