Family members and friends are invited to celebrate with the Class of 2011 at Northwest Nazarene University’s 95th Annual Commencement Convocation.

Mark your calendar for Saturday, May 7 at the Idaho Center.  Baccalaureate Service begins at 10 a.m. and Commencement at 3 p.m.

President Dr. David Alexander will offer the baccalaureate sermon and Dr. Burton Webb, vice president for academic affairs, will give the commencement address. Since assuming the presidency of NNU in July of 2009, Dr. Alexander has led the University in articulating the NNU mission and values. Dr. Webb came to NNU last fall from Indiana Wesleyan University and has a Ph.D. in microbiology and immunology from Indiana University School of Medicine.

Degrees will be conferred on 478 students, of which 236 are graduate students and 242 are undergraduates. This is the first year the master of science in nursing will be graduating students with eight participating in commencement.

NNU’s graduates represent 27 states from as far away as New York and six foreign countries that include China, Guatemala, Jamaica, Kenya, South Korea and Vietnam.

Commencement activities also bring back many Golden Grads (graduated 50 years ago). This year 28 members of the class of 1961 will return to be inducted into this prestigious group and participate in the commencement convocation.

Doors open one hour before each ceremony, and all are invited to a reception immediately following commencement on the main floor of the Idaho Center. Find more information online at www.nnu.edu/commencement.
