Graduation season is in full swing, and on Friday, the first group of students got their diplomas from Carson-Newman University.

"For 124 years this institution of higher education has been known as Carson-Newman College. But no more," said Carson-Newman President Randall O'Brien. "Today, the first class of Carson-Newman University sits before you."

The college officially changed their name earlier this year.

267 students got their degrees Friday morning at the commencement ceremony at Burke-Tarr Stadium. These graduates received a coin with a Carson-Newman College seal on one side and the new University seal on the other to commemorate the historic event.
