2018 Graduation

Utah State University Graduate Commencement

Congrats to all our graduates! This year, commencement took place Friday, May 4 at the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum. We honored 945 Masters Graduates and 94 Doctorate graduates. We loved having the chance to recognize our graduates who have worked so hard to complete their degrees.


This year, Honorary Doctorates were awarded to Thierry Fischer, music director of the Utah Symphony, Bartell Jensen, former USU VP for research and president of the USU Foundation and Space Dynamics Lab, John Welch, founding partner of law firm Latham and Watkins, and Gail Sorenson, founder of the Elizabeth Academy. You can read more about the honorary degree recipients on the USU Today website.


For the Graduate School ceremony, Vice President for graduate studies Mark McLellan gave the commencement address, which is up on the RGS YouTube page.
