SITKA - The University of Alaska Southeast Sitka Campus honored the Class of 2013 during its commencement ceremony on May 3, at the UAS Sitka Campus.
This year's graduation ceremony was the first to join two University of Alaska campuses, as some students who are graduating from UAS Sitka Campus programs will participate from the University of Alaska Anchorage. The UAS Sitka Campus is known for its e-Learning programs, which allow students from across the state and even the Lower 48 to take classes from their home communities.
Students honored include those receiving bachelor and associate degrees, one-year certificates, occupational endorsements and certified nurse aide accreditations. Roger Schmidt, the executive director of the Sitka Fine Arts Camp, was the commencement speaker. A reception hosted by the UAS Student Government Association will take place at the UAS Atrium immediately following the graduation ceremony.
