Posted: Updated:
GROVE CITY, Pa. -

Vice President Mike Pence will address the largest graduating class in Grove City College history on Saturday when he speaks at the College’s 137th Commencement, according to officials at the college.

The college expects to confer 606 bachelor’s degrees in the arts, science, music, electrical and mechanical engineering, making the Class of 2017 the largest graduating class in the school’s 141-year history.

The 606-member Class of 2017 breaks a record established in 2010, when the private Christian liberal arts and sciences college graduated 596 seniors.

Vice President Pence will deliver the keynote address to graduates, their families and the Grove City College community. 

It is the first of just three graduation season addresses on the Vice President’s schedule, followed by remarks at University of Notre Dame on Sunday, May 21, and at the U.S. Naval Academy on May 26.

Commencement begins at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 20, on the Quad between Harbison Chapel and Crawford Hall on the campus of Grove City College, weather permitting.

Access to campus will be limited and tickets are required to attend commencement.

Commencement ceremonies will be streamed live at www.gcc.edu/livestream and on the College’s Facebook page.

In case of inclement weather, Commencement and/or Baccalaureate will be held in the Arena of the Physical Learning Center on campus.
