On Thursday, May 9, Commonwealth Honors College celebrated the hard work, perseverance, and success of 889 University of Massachusetts Amherst graduates. For Honors College seniors, the Celebration of Excellence served as the start to the many activities that took place over Commencement weekend. Amid the flurry of activities, this event was a pivotal moment when each graduate's academic success was recognized, with their respective Honor's distinction and Thesis titles listed in the ceremony's program. Graduates also received their well-earned gold stole and had a chance to show their appreciation to all who made the moment possible. Peers cheered on the graduates in the culmination of their UMass journey, and families beamed with pride as they met the advisors, mentors, and faculty that helped their graduates chart their course.
