More than 600 students will receive diplomas at Carroll University’s Commencement ceremony on Sunday, May 13, 2012. The graduates include about 550 expected to earn bachelor’s degrees, 45 expected to earn master’s degrees and 45 Doctor of Physical Therapy degrees.
Nearly 4,500 parents and guests will attend Carroll's traditional outdoor ceremony, marked by bagpipers and carillon music, which will begin at 1 p.m. on the lawn in front of Main Hall on East Avenue. It will be preceded by a baccalaureate ceremony at 10 a.m. in the auditorium of Shattuck Music Center on East Avenue at Wright Street.
The keynote speaker will be Dr. Howard Fuller, a 1962 Carroll graduate and founder/director of the Institute for the Transformation of Learning at Marquette University.

More About Carroll University
Carroll University is the oldest 4-year higher education institution in the state of Wisconsin. In fact, it was established as Carroll College prior to Wisconsin becoming a state in the 1840's. Carroll is always improving; since the arrival of Campus President, Dr. Douglas N. Hastad, the campus has seen many upgrades in the Fall of 2006. Some of these include: the change from "college" to "university" status, a new track was built, the Pioneer Hall dormatory was erected, enhancing renovations were done to the Campus Center and the the Main Lawn was improved.
Students seem to be very happy with all what their Campus Center has to offer (i.e. ATM, Recycling bins, caferteria and fast food restaurants, book store, public rest rooms, and more). The Campus Center also holds conference/meeting rooms, a ballroom, concert hall, radio station, information desk, events office, and the campus' public safety department.
