Nearly 5,000 UCSB Students to Graduate


A total of 4,985 graduating UCSB students will take part in eight official commencement ceremonies on campus scheduled from 6/6 and to 6/13. The ceremonies reportedly attract an estimated 40,000 visitors to the Santa Barbara area each year. As is tradition, the procedures are organized by college, level of degree, and field of study so that each student can be individually recognized, getting a handshake from Chancellor Henry Yang.
