What a weekend! The University of Iowa held 14 commencement ceremonies between May 11 and 14 (with two more—Dentistry and the MBA program—still to come). More than 5,400 University of Iowa students participated in commencement ceremonies across the UI campus, celebrating their accomplishments with family, friends, loved ones, and fellow Hawkeyes.

As the spring 2023 cohort of new graduates enters the next stage of their lives, they leave campus full of potential and promise, and memories of their cap-and-gown moments.
