Boost from St. Joseph’s helps Marian University graduate record number

Marian University plans to award a record number of degrees at its graduation ceremony Sunday, the school announced Friday.

The Indianapolis university will award 933 degrees at the ceremony at the Indiana State Fairgrounds, including a record 781 undergraduate and graduate students, and 152 graduates from the college’s College of Osteopathic Medicine. The medical graduates exceed last year's inaugural graduating class of 131.

Forty-three transfer students from St. Joseph’s College students will also graduate from Marian on Sunday. Eighty former St. Joseph's students transferred to Marion after the Rensselaer college suspended operations last year.

The commencement address will be delivered by former Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard.
