At this year’s Commencement, Plymouth State conferred its first doctoral degrees during a ceremony that combined undergraduate and graduate degree candidates. Bruce Wiggett ’74, chair of the Alumni Association welcomed each graduate with a handshake, and representatives from the class of 1962, the last class to graduate from Plymouth Teachers College, participated in the day’s events.

In May, the Alumni Relations Office launched an alumni opinion surveyand conducted focus groups to learn more about what you want from your Alumni Association. Nearly 2,000 of you shared your thoughts and opinions about your alma mater! Thank you to everyone who volunteered their time to complete this important information request. Rodney Ekstrom ’09G, director of alumni relations, will report the results of the survey later this summer.
