RENO, Nev. (AP) - The University of Nevada, Reno will award 2,251 degrees and certificates during its spring commencement this week.
Three ceremonies are planned.
The ceremony for advanced-degree recipients will be held Friday afternoon.
Bachelor-degree ceremonies will be held Friday and Saturday mornings. Last year, the university began having two undergraduate ceremonies to accommodate larger graduating classes and bigger crowds.
All will take place on UNR's historic Quadrangle.
UNR officials say the number of graduates has increased 23 percent since 2007.
