Celebrating the Class of 2020 Winter Graduates

More than 2,200 UNLV students will earn degrees on Dec. 15 during the Winter 2020 Commencement — up 12% from 2019. The Class of 2020 hails from 32 states and 36 foreign countries, many are the first in their family to graduate from college, and well over half – 65 percent – are from ethnically diverse backgrounds. This year’s class ranges in age from 19 to 75, with an average age of 27. Since 1964, UNLV has awarded more than 148,000 degrees. Collectively, the Class of 2020 rose above this year’s obstacles including UNLV’s transition to remote learning, postponed on-campus events, and the inability to study, work, and collaborate with friends, classmates, and teachers in person.
