DURANT, Okla. – Graduates, families, and friends celebrated three in-person commencement ceremonies  Friday-Saturday-Sunday at Southeastern Oklahoma State University.

The Spring 2021 graduating class includes students from 38 states and 19 countries. Forty-nine percent are first-generation graduates – the first in their families to receive a college degree.

All three ceremonies were held  at Paul Laird Field on the Durant campus; the Friday and Saturday events began at 9 a.m., while the Sunday ceremony was moved from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. due to the threat of  thunderstorms in the area.
