RADFORD, Va. (WDBJ) - It’s a special day for all and one people never forget, Graduation Day! 594 Radford students turned alumni Saturday in front of their families, friends and the professors who have been with them since day one.

This isn’t the first time Radford University has hosted an in-person graduation; it had 18 separate ceremonies in the spring. But it was the first time students at Radford’s main campus and its Carilion campus have walked side by side to receive their diplomas.

Lakendra Walton, who is a first-generation college graduate, is happy to have her graduation back in person.

”It means a lot. I don’t see a lot of them on day-to-day basis because the different mix of classes. It’s great to see everybody all together.”

You can find more video of the graduation class on Radford’s Facebook here.
