Today was graduation day for Angelo State University students.
Due to the growing student population at ASU, the graduating class was split into 3 different ceremonies. In order to shorten the length of each ceremony, the university opted out of having a guest speaker this year.
Students of 6 different countries, 35 different states and 75 different majors were represented and celebrated during today’s commencement. Since founded in 1928 as San Angelo College, the university has gratuated nearly 50,000 students.
“I feel good. After 4 years I’m finally done, but the journey doesn’t stop,” said Tim Johnson, a 2019 ASU Graduate.
“It’s been a big day. Driving up here you think, ‘yeah, I’m about to graduate,’ and then you finally get here and it’s happening and you find yourself walking across the stage and it’s just like, ‘Wow! 4 years later, I did it!’ It’s a big day,” said Ally Coscetti, a 2019 ASU Graduate.
Congratulations to all of the graduates and good luck on all of your future endeavors!
