The College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences celebrates the success of its summer and fall graduates at its Fall Commencement ceremonies on December 20, 2013. In the issue of the CLASS News Update, the College spotlights five CLASS graduates who have overcome illnesses, long distances, crises of confidence and other significant obstacles that could have ended their efforts to earn their degrees.
