Nearly 1,950 Minnesota State University Mankato are set to graduate this fall, with 700 participating in an in-person ceremony this weekend.
MSU said in a release that 2,276 degrees will be awarded to the 1,941 students. The number of degrees is larger because some students earn more than one degree.
In-person commencement ceremonies are scheduled for Saturday, December 11 at 9 a.m. in Taylor Center’s Bresnan Arena on the MSU campus. It’s the first in-person graduation ceremony since December 2019, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Virtual ceremonies were held in May and December 2020, and in May 2021.
Safety measures will be in place due to the recent increase in positivity rates, according to a press release from the university.
