FARGO, ND — More than 650 students walked across NDSU’s graduation stage to receive their diplomas.

That includes 14 Bison football players who then left right after to prepare for tonight’s game.
The ceremonies’ commencement speaker told students to always expect the unexpected, to not expect things to come easily and the graduates should be proud of this accomplishment.
Senior Monica Claxton is from Texas and says she’s glad to share this moment with her parents.

“It’s different just because they’ve never been up here in the winter so they have to experience cold Fargo for the first time. I’m so excited. It’s amazing. I spent four and a half years trying to get this degree. A lot of hard work, some tears, but finally made it,” Claxton said.

Claxton has plans to work at Spectrum Aeromed where she will design medical equipment that goes inside helicopters and airplanes.
