University of West Florida To Mark Over 100,000 Graduates At Fall Commencement

December 8, 2023

The University of West Florida will reach a significant milestone, officially surpassing 100,000 graduates during the University’s Fall 2023 Commencement this Saturday, Dec. 9 at the Pensacola Bay Center.

“Our 100,000 alumni have boldly entered the world and dynamically impacted their professions and communities,” said UWF President Martha D. Saunders. “Today, you’ll find our graduates filling roles as accountants and educators, nurses and military leaders, entrepreneurs and engineers. We are proud of their many accomplishments, and their support of the University as alumni tells us they are proud of their alma mater.”

UWF alumni have made their mark in all 50 U.S. states and in 70 countries around the world. The University has nine regional alumni chapters throughout the country that foster local connections to the UWF community.

UWF Alumni Association president Whitney Fike said the 100,000 milestone represents a lot more than an impressive number.

“The achievement of 100,000 alumni symbolizes a vast network of success stories, shared experiences, and continuing connections,” Fike said. “Each graduate contributes to the university’s legacy, and together, we celebrate the collective impact of knowledge, achievement, and lifelong connections forged within the UWF community.” photos, click to enlarge.
