Congratulations to Our Fall 2023 Graduates

commencement 2022
Graduate students celebrate their achievements during commencement.

On Dec. 16, more than 1,000 graduate degrees will be awarded at NC State University’s fall commencement exercises. These include over 700 master’s degrees and nearly 170 doctoral degrees. Degrees will be conferred at PNC Arena, 9 a.m.

Debbie Antonelli, a two-time Emmy Award-winning basketball analyst and NC State alumna, will address summer and fall graduates at the University Commencement ceremony. In addition to her career in broadcasting, Debbie served as the director of marketing for the University of Kentucky and The Ohio State University. Inspired by her son, a Special Olympics athlete, Debbie founded a fundraiser called “24 Hours Nothing But Net,” a 24-hour free-throw shooting marathon in which she makes 100 free throws every hour. In the last five years, “Team Antonelli” has raised more than $847,000 for the Special Olympics and hopes to cross the $1 million mark in May 2024.

Be aware that the PNC Arena has implemented a clear bag policy that will be in effect for commencement.
