This weekend, the University of Kentucky honored its graduates at the first in-person Commencement Ceremonies to take place in nearly 18 months.
Around 4,400 graduates registered to participate across 10 ceremonies in Rupp Arena. About 1,000 of those were 2020 graduates who were also invited to take part in the 2021 ceremony, after not having an in-person ceremony last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Overall 5,173 degree candidates were conferred for approval by the UK Board of Trustees last week. This includes 3,599 undergraduate, 1,085 graduate and 489 professional degree candidates for May 2021.
From the College of Health Sciences, 143 undergraduate students and 41 graduate students received their diplomas.
All of us at CHS congratulate all of you who graduated this weekend!
