Spring graduate numbers stay steady, graduate degrees double


The irregularly scheduled spring semester at North Central is now winding down to a close and students are at the cusp of their summer break. For students that will be graduating this semester, the commencement ceremony is today, May 4.

The ceremony is taking place in Bloomington, Minnesota at Cedar Valley Church. It will start at 2:30 p.m. and run until 4:30 p.m.
This year 154 students will be participating in the commencement ceremony, 11 of which are master students being hooded.

The ceremony also includes some students that graduated in the fall of 2017, but wanted to participate in the spring commencement service.

Graduation numbers are consistent with last year’s graduate numbers, which were also 154 students, however only four of them received their master’s hood in the spring of 2017. For spring commencement in 2016, the graduating size was slightly larger with the total coming out to 176 students graduating, with one student being hooded.
