When Jacqueline Barber received her Bachelor of Science in Cybersecurity from University of Maryland University College (UMUC) on May 14, she said she checked off her “next bucket-list thing to do.” Graduating with her daughter, Tiffinie Jennings, who received her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration on the same day during the same UMUC commencement ceremony―well, that was a bonus beyond imagining.
Amid the fanfare of faculty, family and friends, nearly 3,600 of the 9,023 University of Maryland University College stateside graduates walked the stage and received their master’s, bachelor’s and associate’s diplomas in three separate ceremonies on Saturday and Sunday, May 14 and 15, when UMUC held its 2016 stateside commencement exercises at the Xfinity Center in College Park, Maryland.
