Commencement Recap

Nearly 970 students received undergraduate degrees  as friends, families and loved ones filled the Westside Athletic Complex stadium on Sunday, May 13, for WestConn’s 114th commencement. Entrepreneur and philanthropist, Ronald Bruder was the commencement speaker.
At a separate graduate commencement ceremony on Friday, May 11, in the Feldman Arena of the William O’Neill Athletic and Convocation Center, 160 students received graduate degrees. Several educators also received doctoral degrees. Commencement speaker Nancy Wyman, Connecticut's Lt. Governor, discussed “your future is Connecticut’s future.”

As important as the actual degrees received are the feelings of accomplishment and satisfaction experienced by our graduates. Whether they enrolled at WestConn upon graduating from high school, after a stint at a community college or other university, or after decades in the workforce — every member of the Class of 2012 had something to celebrate at commencement.

Following are highlights of commencement weekend, in images, video and narrative.
