Posted: Updated:

CARBONDALE -- Graduates, families, and friends celebrated at SIU Saturday for the school's spring commencement ceremony.

Thousands of graduates walked across stage to receive their degrees in dozens of majors. Afterwards they poured outside of Saluki arena to celebrate. Graduates say they have mixed feelings. They're sad to leave SIU, but excited for the next step in life.

"It's pretty great to have my friends and my wife walking across stage. Its the end of an era and the start of a brand new life," said graduate SIU Braden Mayer.
