No Less Than 80 Student-Athletes Eligible For Spring Grad Ceremonies

LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) – No less than 80 current and former UNLV student-athletes are eligible to take part in this week's series of Commencement Ceremonies at Sam Boyd Stadium.
 
The list includes Rebels who wrapped up their course work this semester as well as those on track to complete their degrees during the summer sessions.
 
To begin the celebration, the UNLV Athletics Department hosted its annual Senior Send-Off reception for graduates and their families Thursday evening at the Thomas & Mack Center.
 
Some graduates, including a number of the dozen football players on the list, have remaining eligibility and will compete for their respective teams again next season while pursuing either a master's or second bachelor's degree.
 
Presided over by President Keith E. Whitfield, UNLV is offering four in-person commencement ceremonies this week to honor both Spring 2021 grads and the entire class of 2020. All ceremonies are being held outdoors at Sam Boyd Stadium while adhering to public health guidelines.
 
UNLV first honored both Spring 2021 and all 2020 master's, specialist, and doctoral graduates yesterday morning. Today, UNLV celebrated half of the Spring 2021 undergraduate class in a morning ceremony and the other half will be recognized on Saturday beginning at 8 a.m. All 2020 grads will be honored in a special Friday evening ceremony.
 
In total, more than 8,000 students will be celebrated over the course of the four ceremonies. Of those, 3,300 students will join the ranks of UNLV alumni as the Class of 2021.
 
The Class of 2021 is made up of graduates from 41 states and 56 foreign countries, many are the first in their family to graduate from college, and well over half – 63 percent – are from ethnically diverse backgrounds.
 
This year's class ranges in age from 19 to 76, with an average age of 27. Since 1964, UNLV has awarded more than 150,000 degrees.
