Central announces summer 2012 graduates

Special to The Sun

EDMOND — The University of Central Oklahoma released the names of 398 graduates for the summer semester from throughout Oklahoma, the U.S. and the world. Of that number, Central received 301 undergraduate applications and 97 graduate applications.

Since Central does not hold a summer commencement ceremony, many of these graduates participated in the spring 2012 ceremony.

Founded as a teachers’ college in 1890, Central considers itself an institution where teaching comes first, and with a 19:1 student/faculty ratio, students can enjoy personal relationships with faculty and staff who are committed to transforming lives.
