SOUTH BEND — The Indiana University South Bend class of 2013 included four married couples receiving degrees together, one mother-daughter pair and several military veterans and members of the armed forces.

IUSB Chancellor Una Mae Reck recognized these students and the outstanding achievements of others at the university’s commencement ceremony on Tuesday, May 7.

The ceremony, held at Notre Dame’s Joyce Center, was Reck’s last as chancellor. She is stepping down at the end of the 2012-2013 school year and will join the faculty of the School of Education as a full-time professor.

One-thousand and sixty-four IUSB students received diplomas Tuesday evening.

With their degrees in hand, the graduates are poised to take their places among the leaders of tomorrow, said John Applegate, Indiana University’s executive vice president for university regional affairs, planning and policy.

Applegate spoke Tuesday evening in place of University President Michael McRobbie, who was ill.

“We are awakening to the next step we will take in our journey forward,” said Hannah Dill, a graduate.

Although their journeys will take them in different directions, Dill said, “We will forever share the identity of IUSB graduates.”
