SXU's Commencement to be featured on NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt


This time of year brings convocations for both high school and university students across the nation and Saint Xavier University (SXU) would like to extend its deepest congratulations and well-wishes for success to all of its graduates! SXU held its 172nd Annual Commencement ceremonies during the weekend of May 5, where a total of 1,074 graduates were celebrated. The weekend's ceremonies was filled with tears of joy and pride, laughter and an overall sense of accomplishment by students and administration alike.

The annual festivities incorporated two inspiring Commencement speakers and honorary degree recipients, which included Immediate Past President of Advocate Christ Medical Center Kenneth W. Lukhard, M.A., MPA, and Award-winning Chicago Sun-Times Urban Affairs Reporter and Columnist Maudlyne Ihejirika.

This line-up gained attention of SXU graduates but various media outlets throughout the Chicagoland area as well. For the third year in a row, SXU's Commencement ceremonies will be included in NBC Nightly News' Annual Commencement Roundup segment, which is scheduled to air the first Friday in June.
