Perimeter College at Georgia State University is set to host its fall commencement ceremony at the new Georgia State Convocation Center on Wednesday, Dec. 14, at 2 p.m.
The event will recognize the more than 780 candidates expected to receive their associate degree from the state’s largest two-year college.
Other academic pathways for the 784 associate degree fall candidates at Perimeter range from health science professions, computer science and business administration to engineering, nursing and criminal justice. Perimeter College offers more than 30 academic pathways leading to an associate of arts or associate of science degree.
Just over one in four of the degree candidates is a first-generation graduate, meaning they are the first in their family to earn a college degree.
“We are immensely proud of all our graduates who will receive their associate degrees from Georgia State’s Perimeter College, said Dr. Cynthia Y. Lester, Perimeter’s interim dean.
“Persisting in college, under any circumstance and especially over the past several years, is highly commendable. Congratulations to our fall ’22 graduates.”
Georgia State President M. Brian Blake, Dr. Nicolle Parsons-Pollard, interim provost, Dr. Allison Calhoun-Brown, senior vice president of student success and Dr. Michael Sanseviro, vice president for student engagement, are among the university leaders who, along with Dr. Lester, will celebrate Perimeter’s fall graduates during the December ceremony.
