ST. CLOUD -- What's better than a commencement ceremony? Ten of them -- to accommodate graduates and families, allowing for the necessary COVID safety protocols. And that's exactly what Saint Cloud State University has planned for this weekend.

St. Cloud State University will be celebrating its graduates with a series of ten commencement ceremonies this Friday and Saturday, May 7th and 8th to comply with COVID-19 precautions currently in place for Minnesota.
