Spring classes are over, final grades are complete—time for summer at UAA!
Saturday, May 4, was the UAA hooding ceremony in the Wendy Williamson Auditorium. CTC placed the master’s hood on a record number of the eight graduates from the Career and Technical Education master’s degree program.
On Sunday, May 5, CTC celebrated with over 350 of the college’s graduates receiving degrees and certificates at UAA’s spring commencement in the Sullivan Arena. Special thanks to CTC alumnus Jonathan Hornak (B.S., Construction Management 2011) for carrying the college’s gonfalon flag at this year’s commencement ceremony. Many of the college divisions, departments and programs also hosted special ceremonies and receptions over the past two weeks to recognize graduates and celebrate their students’ accomplishments. Congratulations to all of the CTC graduates, and many thanks to all of the college’s faculty and staff who helped the Class of 2013 reach their goal this year!
