2022 UNOH Graduation Ceremony

UNOH held its first in-person graduation in two years on Sunday, June 12, 2022 for students who were scheduled to complete their coursework from September 1, 2021 through August 31, 2022.  A total of 903 students from the College of Applied Technologies, College of Business, College of Health Professions, College of Occupational Professions, and Graduate College received their degrees and diplomas. Of those, 140 students earned two or more credentials! In total, the class of 2022 represents 38 states and 14 countries.

"It's a very special day for everyone at UNOH. It's the final special day for our graduates who have worked hard to attain their degrees and certificates, and we take pride in the fact that we have students from all over the world graduating today. It's very special for everyone," said Dr. Jeff Jarvis, UNOH president. “The past two years we’ve had to hold these celebrations virtually, so it’s nice to be here, in person, with the graduates and their families, celebrating this occasion.”

John Hartman, the honorary speaker and graduate at Sunday’s ceremonies had a special message during his commencement address, “Just because our college journey ends here, it doesn’t mean our experiences and friendships end here as well,” he said to the crowd.

“We have a new chapter in life upon us and it’s our time to take it, just like how we all took the opportunity for higher education and succeed. To all my fellow students here, it is our time as Racers to go out and achieve great success. To land our dream jobs and to have a successful life. All of our career paths may be different, but we are all Racers. United by our passion and love for our career industries. Our race to win can be landing that sales or marketing job or landing that automotive or diesel technician job. Our achievements and successes are our own victories.”

Hartman graduated Sunday with a Bachelor in Specialized Studies Business Administration with concentrations in Marketing and Automotive Management.  He previously completed his associate degree in High Performance Motorsports and Automotive Technology.

Following both the morning and afternoon ceremonies, friends, families, classmates and professors posed for photos and reminisced about their time at UNOH and where each of them are headed next in their careers.  Some students will be traveling across the country to pursue a job, while others are planning to continue their education at UNOH.  Either way, the faculty and staff are immensely proud of this group of students who persevered through a global pandemic and finished their college education in person by walking across the graduation stage.  Once a Racer, Always a Racer!
