The University of Cincinnati celebrated its Fall 2012 Commencement on Saturday, December 15 and 17 student-athletes walked across the stage to accept their degrees.

The ceremony, held at UC's Fifth Third Arena, was the first for President Ono, who was appointed to office in October of this year.

"No matter where you are from and where you will make your next home, today each of you embarks on a new phase in your life's journey," Ono told the graduates. "Without a doubt, each of you is a different person from when you first arrived. And there is no denying that from this day forward, you are a UC alumnus."

The ceremony was also touted by U.S. Senator Rob Portman, who gave the commencement address, and Larry Sheakley, C.E.O. of the Sheakley Group, an outstanding supporter of the UC Bearcats as well as an outstanding benefactor of the Cincinnati community, who was presented with an Honorary Doctor of Commercial Science.
