Commencement is a time to celebrate accomplishments, but not a time to say goodbye. Once a Boxer, always a Boxer.

While commencement might mean an end to sleepless nights and term papers, it is also an important rite of passage for a Boxer. Commencement is a time to celebrate accomplishments, but not a time to say goodbye. Once a Boxer, always a Boxer.

Graduates of the College of Education, along with friends, families, students, faculty and staff celebrated the completion of 43 master’s degrees during a December ceremony in Eugene. 

During the May commencement in Forest Grove, 273 Boxers received bachelor’s degrees. On the same day, 63 students received master’s degrees from the College of Education, while 85 students earned their doctoral degrees from the College of Optometry.

Twenty-seven Boxers earned their Occupational Therapy master’s degree, while 92 students completed doctoral degrees in Pharmacy and 42 students earned doctoral degrees in Physical Therapy.

In January, the Master of Fine Arts in Writing program graduated 17 students, while in June, 27 students received their MFAs.

Good luck, Boxers, we will see you again!
