Great Falls College MSU to graduate 356 students

Great Falls College MSU Class of 2016

GREAT FALLS—Great Falls College MSU will graduate 356 students who have successfully completed their required course work to earn an associate degree or certificate on Saturday, May 6, 2017.

The commencement ceremony will begin at 10 a.m. in the McLaughlin Center at the University of Great Falls, which is located one block north of Great Falls College MSU at 1301 20th St. S. Lt. Governor Mike Cooney will preside as the college's commencement speaker. Immediately following commencement, Great Falls College MSU will host a reception for graduates and their families in Heritage Hall.

The 356 students conferred on Saturday have collectively earned more than 480 degrees and certificates. Of the graduates, 86 students have earned multiple degrees, 54 will graduate with honors, 60 will graduate with high honors, and nine Dual Enrollment students will walk prior to earning their high school diploma.

"Commencement is the grandest time of the academic year. It is the celebration of our students achieving their goals and the culmination of incredibly hard work. As they prepare to leave us, they will embark on their future careers with the education and skills needed to begin a successful career or transfer to a four-year college or university to continue their education. We not only honor our students but also our faculty, staff and students' families," said Dr. Susan J. Wolff, CEO/Dean at Great Falls College MSU.

The mission of Great Falls College MSU is to educate and inspire you.
