Florida Atlantic University will confer more than 2,770 degrees today and tomorrow for the fall 2021 semester during five in-person commencement ceremonies in the Carole and Barry Kaye Performing Arts Auditorium, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton campus. The new graduates will join more than 187,000 alumni who have graduated from FAU since the University opened its doors in 1964.
“Congratulations to the fall class of 2021,” said FAU President John Kelly. “These graduates overcame much to get to this day. I’m delighted that we can gather to celebrate their accomplishments and I look forward to hearing about their future successes.”
Some interesting statistics regarding the summer graduating class include the fact that 70 of the degree recipients are over the age of 50 and nine are over the age of 60. The oldest graduate is 77, and the youngest is 18. The graduates represent 48 countries.
For the convenience of family members and friends who cannot attend the commencement ceremonies, the proceedings will be cybercast at www.fau.edu.
