The Universities at Shady Grove’s  (USG) Annual Graduation Celebration was held on May 6 and honored the achievements of the fall class of 2015 and the spring class of 2016.

This year’s event celebrated USG’s 15th graduating class. In 2002 there were 36 students in the first graduating class; this year there are 796 – USG’s largest class ever! Since USG’s inception more than 7,000 students have received bachelor’s degrees and thousands more have received graduate degrees.

Throughout the last 15 years’ thousands of highly skilled alumni from our partner universities at USG have entered into successful careers in the region. In honor of our 15th Anniversary USG created a video featuring nine alumni, one from each of our partner universities.
