The joy was contagious throughout eight ceremonies over four days at California State University, Northridge during Commencement 2016, the annual rite that sends thousands of graduates off on their next adventure. The ceremonies began May 20 with Honors Convocation and wrapped with newly minted graduates from the College of Health and Human Development (pictured) on May 23. Family, friends and graduates gathered in front of the Delmar T. Oviatt Library, where all eight celebrations took place. An estimated 8,836 bachelor’s, 2,228 master’s and 56 doctoral degree candidates were invited to take part in the ceremonies. Coming in at more than 11,000, it was the largest graduating class in CSUN history.
