By Ohlone College.
Friday, May 20, 2016, the Epler Gymnasium at the Ohlone College campus in Fremont was once again filled to capacity with graduates, their friends and family. The faculty who have diligently and with dedication propelled toward achieving their goals also looked on as students marched forward to receive their diplomas from Ohlone College President, Dr. Gari Browning.
This year, 721 graduates received their diplomas for associate degrees, and an additional 88 will graduate by the end of summer term. Because several high achievers have earned two associate degrees, the total number of degrees awarded this academic year totals 1024!
Although we focus on recent high school students who intend to transfer to a four-year university, this is a community college and we serve a population that varies widely in age. This year our youngest graduate is only 17, while the “most distinguished in age” is 62. Truly, it is never too late to benefit from education.
