Congratulations to the class of 2010!

As UNCW celebrates more than 60 years of graduating students, last weekend marked a special time for the class of 2010. During Friday and Saturday, May 7 and 8, four separate commencement ceremonies were held in Trask to honor over 2,000 graduating students. Departments held their own ceremonies throughout the week, as well as events for honors students and various award ceremonies that kept campus buzzing with Seahawk Spirit well into Sunday.

The UNCW Alumni Association hosted a Commencement Celebration for the graduates at the Wise Alumni House on Thursday, May 6. The Class of 2010 joined family and friends for refreshments, door prizes and tours through the historic house and gardens. More than 250 guests filled the Wise Alumni House for the festivities. Take a look at photos on the alumni Facebook page.

Just prior to the Commencement Celebration, participants in the Senior Class Gift Campaign were invited to a Senior Toast at the Chancellor's residence, the Kenan House, hosted by the UNCW Annual Fund. Graduates received a commemorative glass with the Class of 2000 etched on the sides for the special toast.

The UNCW Alumni Association congratulates our newest graduating class and hopes to see you at upcoming events to celebrate with more than 53,000 Seahawk alumni across the globe!
