Spring Commencement in Full Swing
Spring commencement ceremonies at the University of Missouri System were in full swing as students and families celebrate the culmination of years of hard work.
“Having a college degree gives you a leg up in life,” says UM System President Tim Wolfe. “Higher education brings rich rewards—not only to the individual but to society as a whole.”
Throughout the four campuses, more than 15,000 degrees will be conferred this year alone—a nearly 30 percent increase from the 11,644 degrees awarded a decade ago.
