A total of 1,205 undergraduate students and 191 graduate students received degrees during Appalachian State University’s Fall 2016 Commencement, which was held in two ceremonies Dec. 10.

Chancellor Sheri N. Everts said, “Students come to this special place, continue to develop and grow into amazing individuals who go on to touch hundreds and thousands of lives through their professions, civic engagement and service.”
