Some 5,000 new graduates receive University of Iowa degrees this spring, and many marked the achievement in May 16-18 commencement ceremonies.
Ten separate ceremonies recognized graduates from liberal arts and sciences, engineering, business, pharmacy, nursing, law, medicine, MBA and graduate programs. (Dentistry graduates will receive their degrees June 7.)
The university also recognized two longstanding leaders with honorary degrees. John Colloton and Mary Louise Petersen received the awards at the Graduate College ceremony May 17.
