The football team led the way with 15 players receiving their undergraduate degrees. A combined 13 track and field athletes were also well represented.
Three soccer players, one men's golfer and one volleyball player were also honored.
The graduates were given stoles with the words "Student-Athlete" that they can wear during the graduation ceremony.
