BERGEN COUNTY GRADUATES RECEIVE DIPLOMAS
FROM BERKELEY COLLEGE

 

Graduates from Bergen County, NJ, were awarded diplomas at the 2017 Berkeley College Commencement ceremony, held on May 5, 2017, at Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. More than 2,900 students were awarded Bachelor’s and Associate’s degrees, and Certificates. The graduating class included 175 military and veteran students and 200 international students, representing 42 countries.


“This is your day,” said Michael J. Smith, President of Berkeley College. “You have done it. The opportunities that stand before you are endless. From this moment forward, there are no limits other than what you place on yourself.”

The Berkeley College Class of 2017 comprises graduates who exemplify the “new” traditional student, as so many are first-generation college graduates, with some workforce experience. The average age of a Berkeley College graduate in 2017 is 28.5 years. Just over 31 percent of the graduates entered Berkeley as first-time, full-time students, and more than 81 percent identify as a minority.
