This weekend, more than 4,000 students marched the Fox Theatre stage clutching their new degrees. As these students graduated, they joined more than 260,000 alumni from all over the world. The commencements, which took place on May 9 and 10, included bachelors, masters and PHD recipients. 

"Commencement is and important milestone, and I'm confident your time at Wayne State has prepared you to reach many more. As a Wayne State graduate, you are better equipped to succeed in an ever-changing and diverse world," President M. Roy Wilson said. "Wayne State has asked a lot from you, not the least of which was to be the best student you could be."
