Commencement Ceremony

If you’ve been following our commencement speaker series, you’ve already read the inspiring stories for Erica Taylor and Greg Zobel, two recent WGU Indiana graduates who overcame life barriers to go further in their education. Now we’d like you to meet Randall Frietzsche.

In our last blog, you met Erica Taylor, a recent WGU Indiana graduate who earned her degree while between jobs – and fighting illness. Today, we introduce you to another recent graduate, Greg Zobel, who earned his degree in the Health Informatics program.

WGU Indiana's first commencement celebrated the work of seven graduates. Yes, seven. The second commencement was triple in size. As we embark on our third commencement this Saturday, we have more than tripled in size again!

As a mother of seven children and a full-time nurse, Rachel Ingram thought finishing her bachelor’s degree was NOT going to happen.

Our recent Commencement at WGU Indiana was an exciting day. First, our graduates were honored at the State House ceremony hosted by Governor Daniels and later, at the Indians baseball game at Victory Field.

Back in October, at WGU Indiana's first-ever commencement ceremony, Governor Mitch Daniels said, “The WGU model – the ingenious model that was created a couple decades back – fits Indiana like a tailored suit.”

On Wednesday, October 27, we recognized seven Indiana online degree graduates at our first commencement. Commencement included Governor Mitch Daniels and Chancellor Allison Barber at the Indiana Statehouse. The staff at WGU and WGU Indiana would like to congratulate each of them.

In June 2010, Governor Mitch Daniels announced a national partnership with the non-profit online university Western Governors University and Indiana, forming WGU Indiana. On October 27, 2010 WGU Indiana held its first ever commencement ceremony with 7 graduating students at Indiana State House. This marks an historic moment, the first of many commencement ceremonies for WGU Indiana college students. Governor Mitch Daniels and WGU Indiana Chancellor Allison Barber hosted the event. Dawn Hanson, a graduate of WGU Indiana's College of Health Professions, spoke at the ceremony.
