Title

The First Commencement Exercises of University of Maryland Baltimore County

Description

UMBC's first graduation ceremonies occurred on June 7, 1970. Diane Juknelis, a student receiving a B.A. in political science, spoke about the new campus making its mark" as a new, innovative, young, and strong" school. The present class of graduates is the first in a long line of innovators who are not to be considered products of UMBC, but rather constant producers of all that gives it character and quality. The campus, ever-growing and changing, will bear the indelible imprint of those who participated in its all-important first step on a course untried."
