UVU Celebrates Largest Graduating Class in History

Congratulations to our incredible students for a successful year! With 10,197 graduates receiving 12,489 degrees and certificates, the UVU class of 2024 is the largest in the university’s history.

Professors lined the hallways to kick off the commencement celebration, cheering enthusiastically as the graduating seniors paraded from the Fugal Gateway Building to the UCCU Event Center. The charged atmosphere created an epic experience, with graduates feeling immense pride as their professors’ cheers echoed through the halls, marking this milestone with heartfelt support and joy.

To our graduates, especially all those who worked and volunteered at The Review, we are immensely proud of your achievements and can’t wait to see what you accomplish next.
