The Best Is Yet to Come

With pomp and circumstance, annual commencement exercises capped off the 2018-2019 academic year

They came. They marched. They graduated.

The Class of 2019 was feted in nine commencement ceremonies over eight days in multiple venues across campus. And with a combined 6,867 undergraduate and graduate students set to complete their degrees this calendar year, it was a fine celebration indeed.

The campus’s College of Creative Studies, the Bren School of Environmental Science & Management, the Graduate Division, the College of Engineering and the College of Letters and Science gave a grand sendoff to their latest graduates, and the Surfrider Battalion commissioned 10 ROTC cadets as 2nd lieutenants in the U.S. Army.

Every gathering shared a common focus: honoring the students for their achievements and wishing them success in their future endeavors.

Job well done, Gauchos. Hail, hail, hail!
