Spartans Celebrate 2013 Commencement

San Jose State University student-athletes celebrated the time-honored tradition of commencement on May 25 in Spartan Stadium.

More than 100 student-athletes, staff and coaches earned bachelor's or masters degrees, or a teaching credential during the 2012-13 academic year.

"Remember, we are all San Jose State University," Commencement speaker Connie Lurie told the audience of graduates, family of graduates and friends of the University. "...(And) support athletics - be involved."

Lurie, for whom the San Jose State University College of Education is named after, Joseph "Joe" Parisi and Nicki Parisi were recipients of honorary Doctorates of Humane Letters. Mr. Parisi is a Spartan Foundation member at the Golden Blazer level.
