UNH Holds Commencement For 2,500 Graduates

UNH webstream

  College commencement season marches on in New Hampshire. 

On Saturday the University of New Hampshire held ceremonies for about 2,500 graduates.

President Mark Huddleston noted the Durham campus hosted a wide range of presidential hopefuls during the 2016 primary - a wide enough range that students were almost certainly confronted with candidates and positions with which they strongly disagreed.

"But not once - not once - was UNH in the media spotlight for displaying the sort of reflexive outrage, thin-skinned hypersensitivity or vitriolic spleen venting that has to define so much of our national discourse," he said. 

St. Anselm College conferred degrees on 432 students this weekend.

The New Hampshire Institute of Art holds its commencement ceremony today.

White Mountain Community College, River Valley Community College and NHTI Concord's Community College held commencements on Friday. The University of New Hampshire at Manchester awarded 140 undergraduate and 40 graduate degrees on Thursday. 

The New Hampshire College and University Council says additional colleges in the state will hold commencements in the coming weeks, with Dartmouth College capping off the season on June 12.

NHCUC president Thomas Horgan says more than 19,000 students statewide are receiving degrees.
