NKU to Graduate Over 1,400 Saturday in Two
Ceremonies at The Bank of Kentucky Center


HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky.
– Northern Kentucky University will hold its winter commencement ceremonies on Saturday, Dec. 15, at The Bank of Kentucky Center. NKU is expected to graduate over 1,400 undergraduate and graduate students.

The university will host two separate ceremonies – one beginning at 10 a.m. for associate, bachelor and master degree candidates from the College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Informatics. Doors will open at 9 a.m. and the ceremony is expected to conclude by noon.

A second ceremony will take place at 3:30 p.m. for associate, bachelor and master degree candidates from the College of Education & Human Services, Haile/US Bank College of Business and College of Health Professions. Doors will open at 2:30 p.m. and the ceremony is expected to conclude by 5:30 p.m.

The guest speaker for both ceremonies will be Dr. Chris Christensen, NKU mathematics and statistics professor and recipient of the 2012 Frank Sinton Milburn Outstanding Professor award. Dr. Christensen is an award-winning teacher and scholar who continues to find new and engaging ways to “teach through problems” in calculus and cryptology after 28 years in the classroom at NKU. His teaching style and new research directions it inspires have made him a favorite among students, a model for his colleagues and an established expert in mathematics and cryptology for scholars across the United States.

Tickets are not required for either NKU commencement ceremony. For additional information, visit http://specialevents.nku.edu/commencement.html.
