On Saturday, May 5, Post University celebrated its 122nd Commencement ceremony on its Waterbury, Conn. campus. For the third consecutive year, we also hosted a supplementary virtual commencement via a live video feed to accommodate those who were not able to attend. With a total of 794 graduates, the Class of 2012 is our largest-ever graduating class to date!

Not only was this group of graduates our largest yet, but it was also perhaps the most diverse class we've celebrated. We've compiled all the facts, figures, and feats that defined the Class of 2012 into an infographic, outlining where our graduates hail from, the group's age span, and more. Dr. Tom Samph, President of Post University, also recently contributed an article in The Huffington Post on the changing landscape of many of today's graduating classes.

Even though school's out for summer, exciting things are still happening within the athletic department at Post University! Last month, following a fourth place finish at the Atlantic/East NCAA Super Regional, the men's golf team advanced to the 2012 NCAA Division II National Championship, marking the first time in school history that the Eagles competed for a national NCAA title.

The most successful season in the history of Post University golf ended that Thursday, as the Eagles shot a 310 in round three and a 950 (334-306-310) to finish in 20th place in their debut championship appearance.

In a recent audio interview, Gary Post, grandson of Post University founder Harold C. Post, discussed his unique perspective of the University's growth from a one-building school in downtown Waterbury to our current-day, 58-acre campus in one of the city's loveliest neighborhoods. Gary and his family are the reason Post University exists today, and listening to Gary speak about the University's 122-year history is as enjoyable as it is inspiring.
