Enthusiastic Response of Graduates Prompts New Location – Posted 5/22/17
For the first time in its history, County College of Morris (CCM) will be holding its graduation ceremony off site this year due to the enthusiastic response of students who wish to participate in the ceremony.
The Class of 2017 totals more than 1,400 and it is expected that the number who will participate in commencement will exceed 500. The class includes graduates from August 2016 and January and May 2017.
Given the large number of expected participants, college officials have moved the 48th Commencement Ceremony on Friday, May 26, to the Mennen Sports Arena in Morris Plains. The ceremony starts at 10 a.m.
â€śWeâ€™re delighted that so many CCM students want to take part in their graduation,â€ť said Dr. Anthony J. Iacono, CCM president. â€śMoving the location not only will allow us to better accommodate all of our graduates, it also will allow them to invite more of their family and friends.â€ť
With this commencement, CCM expects to reach a grand total of 50,000 graduates.
