WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Sunday marked the final day for Purdue's Spring Commencement ceremonies. Students receiving degrees in agriculture and engineering walked across the stage. 

2018 graduates took part in an uncommon year of ceremonies, as Drew Feustel received an honorary degree from space this year.
While Purdue University President Mitch Daniels spoke of the talents that the graduates can bring to the professional world, a few students looked back at their time on campus.

"Somehow I had to step out of my comfort zone but thanks to the professor and several knowledgable faculty here they helped me," said graduate Ehsan Ghafari. "They gave me this chance to be working on different projects across different disciplines with different departments so it was a very good experience."

"It was definitely a culture shock coming here as well, I came from a small little town as I mentioned, and seeing all these different people and different perspectives from people around the world really changed my mind view," said graduate William Pierce.
