NEW PALTZ – Sunday marked the third of three-weekend commencement ceremonies for the SUNY New Paltz Class of 2022. The first two were held on the campus on Friday and Saturday.
More than 2,400 undergraduate degrees and nearly 600 graduate degrees and advanced certificates were conferred in total.
College President Donald Christian presided over the commencement exercises for the 12th and final time before his retirement in July.
The class faced much adversity during the latter half of their college experience as COVID-19 struck, closing down the campus and requiring students to transition to remote learning.
