Fresno State’s 108th commencement turned out to be the largest class in school history with more than 6,200 students meeting requirements.
University officials said about 62 percent of graduating students in the class of 2019 are first-generation students whose parents didn’t receive bachelor’s degrees.
And among them, almost 49% are underrepresented minority students.
