Cumberland University’s 175th commencement ceremony took place May 6 on Memorial Lawn with about 544 graduates earning diplomas, which was the largest class in the university’s history. An estimated 4,500 guests were in attendance for the nearly two-hour ceremony where a little rain and a little sunshine made an appearance. The ceremony was condensed because of the threat of rain, although it did not dampen the spirits of the graduates and their families.
