Approximately 3,900 Texas A&M University students were awarded degrees throughout the weekend.
On campus, an estimated 3,750 degree candidates walked the stage Friday and Saturday at Reed Arena in three separate ceremonies.

This graduation started a new tradition in Aggieland, as Texas A&M University recognized graduating veterans with red, white and blue cords as a special form of acknowledgement for their service to their country. Veteran degree candidates wore the cords with their academic regalia during commencement ceremonies.

The ceremonial Commissioning ceremony was held at 9 a.m. on Saturday.

In addition to the degrees to be awarded on the main campus, approximately 140  students at Texas A&M’s marine-oriented branch campus — Texas A&M University at Galveston — received their degrees on Saturday at  Moody Gardens Convention Center in Galveston.

Texas A&M’s other branch campus, Texas A&M University at Qatar, is expected to graduate 15 students, with a recognition ceremony set for Dec. 19.
