Published 6:15 am Saturday, May 20, 2023

BATON ROUGE – LSU recently awarded 4,514 degrees to graduates at the university’s 310th commencement exercises. These new LSU alumni and their hometowns can be viewed on the LSU Graduates List and the LSU Commencement website.

The spring graduating class represents 58 Louisiana parishes, 49 states and 63 countries. Women comprise 59.11 percent of the class, and men comprise 40.89 percent. The youngest graduates are 19, while the oldest is 72 years old. Among the graduates are 34 LSU employees. In addition, the university awarded the most degrees to Hispanic or Latino and Asian students ever during a spring semester.

Graduates receive a digital version of their diploma—inspired by the diploma awarded to students in 1899, on graduation day, along with a diploma cover. Printed diplomas will be shipped to graduates.

The following graduates represented the River Parishes during ceremonies for each college held at various locations on campus on Friday, May 19, and Saturday, May 20.
