With so many students receiving their diplomas, CSU added a fourth graduation ceremony this year. On Thursday night, the hooding ceremony was held at the campus’s University Hall. The ceremony was for students receiving their masters and doctorate degrees.
One husband and wife will be graduating together.
"It's been a great experience,” said Calvin Britt, an upcoming master of science graduate. “As a lot of people know, it’s not that easy but it’s a little bit easier when you have a spouse doing it with you. We're ready to be done with it and move on to this next chapter, whatever we decide to do."
