Western_Carolina_University_sealSurging enrollments has boosted the number of graduates in WCU’s spring class. It has nearly doubled in the last 11 years.

After all the scores from final exams are tallied and academic records are finalized, WCU’s spring class, including recipients of both undergraduate and graduate degrees, is expected to total about 1,385 graduates, which would be the largest class in university history and 45 more graduates than were in last year’s record spring class.

Western Carolina University will host a trio of commencement ceremonies over a two-day period, Friday and Saturday May 9-10 at the Ramsey Center. The university’s commencement ceremonies are open to the public with no limit on the number of family, friends and guests invited by each graduate.
