MSUB Graduates Honored

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS - Nearly 900 Montana State University Billings students graduated Saturday morning at the Rimrock Auto Arena. As most graduates discussed their future goals, others described how they planned to celebrate the milestone.

Emotions ranged from joy to sadness Saturday, as the familiar tune of Pomp and Circumstance filled the air at MetraPark. "We are super excited," Kalli Sizemore said.

"It's a moment in time I've been waiting for a long time," Darci Silbernagel said.

As most graduates shared their future long-term goals, others described how they planned to celebrate the occasion and move forward. "I'm going to have a barbecue, but I'm also going to start a career in my field," Graduate, Nicole Colpron said.

"I'm going to start my own company. It's going to be dog accessories and apparel, and maybe I'll work myself into fashion," Bridget Daly said.

Despite the nearly 900 graduates' different goals, everyone shared the same excitement. "It's an amazing feeling to be done with school for good. I'm not going to get my Master's," Nicole said.

"Relieved, and not stressed out one bit. Very relaxed," Bridget said.

Montana State University Billings' commencement started at 10:00 AM and ended at 1:30 PM.
