Cal State LA’s 69th Commencement kicked off June 9, as jubilant graduates accepted their diplomas and celebrated the start of a new chapter in their lives. Thousands of guests filled the University Athletics Stadium during each of the seven ceremonies. The stadium was emblazoned with Cal State LA banners featuring the University colors, logo and seal. President William A. Covino congratulated each graduate who marched across the stage. About 8,000 students became alumni during the ceremonies. “Your success reminds us what matters most: students come first. Your future is at the heart of our initiatives, plans and projects,” Covino told the graduates. “Your success is our success.” For photos from Commencement, go to the Cal State LA Flickr album.
