2022 Spring Graduation

A bright, sunny day greeted graduates, families and friends at Roy Kidd Stadium on Friday for the 2022 Spring commencement ceremonies. The morning ceremony honored College of Business; College of Education & Applied Human Sciences; and College of Letters, Arts, & Social Sciences graduates. The afternoon ceremony recognized College of Justice, Safety, & Military Science; College of Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics; and College of Health Sciences graduates. We heard inspiring stories from featured speakers and each graduate got their well-deserved opportunity to cross the graduation stage. The Class of 2022 graduated with an average GPA of 3.42, 36 percent were the first in their families to attain a higher education degree, and graduates range in age from 18 to 79. The top degrees awarded include nursing, psychology, criminal justice, occupational safety and communication disorders.


Congratulations 2022 graduates! Enjoy the highlights of the ceremonies captured by EKU Staff Photographer Carsen Bryant.
