Summer and fall term graduates are recognized during first-ever graduation reception event

OU-C recognized students who have earned their Ohio University degrees while taking classes on the Chillicothe Campus during the recent graduation reception event in the Stevenson Center Learning Commons.

The event, the first of its kind, honored students who completed their academic programs during the summer and fall terms. The official Recognition of Graduation ceremony will be held April 29 in the Shoemaker Center.

Approximately 25 graduates attended the event, with about 75 individuals, including friends and family members as well as Chillicothe Campus faculty and staff members in attendance.

Each graduate was recognized and received a certificate. The reception represented a milestone of achievement in the lives of the graduates.

“Earning a college degree is a rigorous endeavor,” Dean Martin Tuck said. “It takes much time, perseverance and sacrifice. Additionally, many of you have balanced family and job responsibilities while attending college.”

“Today, that hard work plays off, and you are to be commended. Because of the effort it requires, a college education is a valuable and treasured asset. The lessons you learned during your college careers, both inside the classroom and beyond, have helped to shape you and prepare you for your future pursuits, and they will last a lifetime.”
