The Portland State University class of 2012 is the largest graduating class in Oregon University history, school officials said.
An estimated 6,165 members of the class received their diplomas Sunday afternoon.
"They came from 50 countries and nearly every state in the union, and ranged in age from 19 to 72," PSU spokesman Scott Gallagher said. "And they had a crowd of nearly 20,000 to cheer them on."
