NC State’s annual spring commencement ceremony will take place at PNC Arena on Saturday, May 7, when Chancellor Randy Woodson will confer 64 associate’s, 3,779 bachelor’s, 1,467 master’s, 190 doctoral and 98 Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degrees. Those 5,598 new graduates will swell the total number for the academic year to 9,074.
