CLAREMORE —

The 2013 class contained more than 660 candidates eligible to participate in the ceremony, which included 376 bachelor’s degrees and 290 associate degrees. 
That number represented students who completed their degree requirements from summer 2012 through spring 2013. 
The top three degree majors for both bachelor’s and associate degrees were business administration, health sciences/medical and social sciences. 
The speakers were Sen. Rick Brinkley, R-Owasso, for the 10 a.m. associate degree ceremony and TU President Steadman Upham for the 1 p.m. bachelor’s degree ceremony. 
We had a capacity crowd of about 2,800 (including students, faculty and guests) for the bachelor's degree ceremony, which is the larger of the two events.
