PLANO GRADUATE RECEIVES DIPLOMA
FROM BERKELEY COLLEGE

 

Muhammed Ozdemir* of Plano in Collin County, TX, received a Bachelor of Business Administration in International Business at the 2019 Berkeley College Commencement ceremony, held on May 10, 2019, at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. The average age of the Berkeley College undergraduate receiving an award is 28 years. Just under 39 percent of the graduates entered Berkeley as first time, full-time students; and 84 percent identify as minorities.

 

“Every one of us at the Berkeley College Commencement ceremony shared the pride of these graduates because we know the difference a college degree will make in their futures, and how the upward mobility of these graduates will impact future generations,” said Michael J. Smith, President of Berkeley College.                            

The Berkeley College Class of 2019 reflects a diverse population from all walks of life. Many are the first in their families to earn college degrees. Others are not native English-speaking.
