Tomorrow, SUU will join together and celebrate their accomplishments and perform the first University graduation ceremony in 2020 in Utah and ABC4 wants to make sure as many as are able can share these accomplishments.

It’s no doubt that 2020 has been filled with many ups and downs. Celebrations and losses have been pushed to the side, the heightened awareness of COVID ringing in the back of everyone’s mind. The achievements of everyone in 2020 should be highlighted, no matter how big or small.

A few stat’s for the SUU Class of 2020:

  • 2059 Graduates
  • 480 Master’s degrees
  • 1280 Bachelor’s degrees
  • 277 associate degrees
  • Average GPA: 3.4949
