UNR to bestow record number of degrees
RENO (AP) – The University of Nevada, Reno says it will bestow a record number of degrees and certificates in its spring commencement ceremonies next weekend.
The 1,997 graduates represents an 8.3 percent increase over 1,843 last year.
University officials attribute higher enrollment to a push in the last decade encouraging more high school students to attend college and the down economy.
UNR’s 120th spring commencement will be held May 14 and 15.
