RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- Just under 50 Nevada Wolf Pack student-athletes have applied for graduation at the University of Nevada this spring and summer.

Ceremonies for the 124th University Commencement are set for this weekend on the University’s historic Quadrangle on Friday, May 16 and Saturday, May 17. This year’s crop of graduates represent 15 sports programs and, with 11 members of the Nevada spirit program also graduating, 57 students representing Nevada athletics will be receiving their degrees this week.

“Congratulations to all of our student-athletes who are graduating this spring and summer,” said Doug Knuth, Nevada’s second-year athletics director. “Earning their college degrees is the ultimate goal for our student-athletes. We thank them for their contributions to the program and legacy of Wolf Pack athletics and we wish them the best as they leave the University of Nevada and enter the next phases of their lives.”

Nevada’s graduating student-athletes represent a variety of majors, including art, biochemistry and molecular biology, biology, chemistry, civil engineering, communications, community health science, finance, human development and family studies, journalism, management, marketing, mathematics, mechanical engineering, nutrition, psychology and wildlife ecology & conservation, among other majors.

Graduating Nevada student-athletes are given special silver and blue cords to wear at commencement in recognition of their efforts as student-athletes. Wolf Pack student-athletes are the only University students allowed to wear silver and blue cords. Including this spring and summer’s 46 graduates, Nevada has seen 612 of its student-athletes graduate in the past nine years, a figure that includes 33 student-athletes who walked in commencement ceremonies this past December.

The Wolf Pack’s Graduation Success Rate is at 77 percent and has improved in eight of the last nine years.
