TEXAS A&M REACHES MILESTONE: EXPANDS ITS NETWORK TO 500,000+ AT GRADUATION

Posted by William Byrnes on May 3, 2019


Commencement ceremonies will be held May 3 in Fort Worth for Texas A&M University School of Law for 17​4 graduates. The day will include a Law School Aggie Ring ceremony and a Military Cord ceremony prior to the hooding ceremony.

The school’s first Masters of Jurisprudence (M.Jur.) ​diplomas will be awarded along with Masters of Law (LL.M.) honors. Graduates walking across the stage are students who earned their ​graduate degrees in ​risk ​management or ​wealth management via Texas A&M Law’s innovative online program.

This May, Texas A&M University will surpass 500,000 former students and record more than 500,000 degrees granted since its opening in the fall of 1876, according to Texas A&M Today. Texas A&M University will award a record 10,767 degrees at 15 commencement ceremonies across multiple campuses.

“These milestones are reflective of our commitment to our land-grant mission to bring higher education to all who seek it, to develop leaders of character and to pursue excellence in teaching, research and service,” Texas A&M University President Michael K. Young said. “Congratulations to the Class of 2019 for being part of this historic moment, and thank you to each and every Aggie who came before for providing the foundation upon which we will continue to build.”

“This milestone is a testament to the unique and unparalleled education and experience provided by Texas A&M. As we also celebrate our 140th year of service and support to Texas A&M, I know the 11 Aggies who created our organization in 1879 would be proud to see the difference 500,000 former students have made on Texas A&M and our world,” The Association of Former Students President and CEO Porter S. Garner III said.
