NORFOLK, VA--Old Dominion University will holds its graduation exercises this weekend on campus, and 62 student athletes are projected to receive their diplomas during the Friday, May 10 or Saturday May 11 ceremonies.

Student athletes are provided commemorative medallions to wear with their caps and gowns, recognizing the commitment they have made to athletics during their ODU experience.

"Few people realize the impressive academic progress our ODU student-athletes demonstrate," says athletic director Dr. Wood Selig. "These young men and women represent our university well both on and off the playing fields and will be great alumni ambassadors. I am equally impressed with their fields of study, as we will have student athletes earning degrees ranging from nursing and engineering to education and business. We are extremely proud of their academic accomplishments and their dedications to their respective sports."
