EDMOND — Russell Walker of Edmond was among a record number of graduates, 3,169, presented with diplomas at UMass Lowell’s 2013 Commencement exercises on May 18 at the Tsongas Center at UMass Lowell.

For the second year, UMass Lowell held two Commencement ceremonies because of the increase in graduates, up more than 250 since last year and more than 1,000 since 2007, a period that has seen a 40 percent increase in enrollment and rising retention. It is the sixth year in a row that a record number received degrees.
