42 Wolf Pack student-athletes set to graduate this spring & summer


RENO, Nev. – Forty-two Wolf Pack student-athletes representing 13 teams have applied for graduation at the University of Nevada this spring and summer. Ceremonies for the 121st University Commencement are set for this weekend on the University Quad with the processional for bachelor’s degree candidates taking place on Saturday, May 14.

The Wolf Pack football team is represented by eight student-athletes, while Nevada’s baseball program has seven graduates. The Wolf Pack men’s golf team is represented by five graduates, while Nevada’s women’s basketball, swimming and diving and track and field teams have four graduates each. Nevada’s men’s tennis, skiing and women’s golf programs each have two graduates, while the Wolf Pack soccer, softball, women’s tennis and volleyball squads are each represented by one graduate. In addition, four members of the Wolf Pack spirit squad will be earning their degrees this spring.

Wolf Pack student-athletes participating in Saturday’s commencement ceremony will wear a special silver and blue cord that is presented to them to recognize their efforts as student-athletes.

Including this spring and summer’s 42 graduates, Nevada has seen 366 of its student-athletes graduate in the past six years. The Wolf Pack’s Graduation Success Rate is also at its all-time high of 75 percent and has improved in each of the last six years.

“I am proud of all of our student-athletes who are leaving the University of Nevada with their degrees,” Nevada Director of Athletics Cary Groth said. “Wolf Pack student-athletes are committed to excellence in the classroom and on the field of competition, and we congratulate them and wish them the best as they enter the next phase of their lives.”
