PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – Thursday was a big day for local graduates at Portland State University. They had the opportunity to get their graduation pictures in-person.
PSU President Stephen Percy and Provost Susan Jeffords congratulated the students in-person on their new degrees. The university says picture day was an opportunity to safely celebrate in-person.
Among the graduates is Julia Misenhimer, a senior and a member of the first graduating class of PSU’s Four Years Free program. The program helped her graduate with a major in biology and minor in women’s studies.
Graduation is still going to be virtual again this year. That ceremony will take place June 13 for 6,200 graduates.
