Graduation weekend in Morgantown wrapped up with the 144th commencement of the WVU Eberly College of Arts and Sciences.

There were more than 400 graduates at Sunday's special ceremony, receiving either their masters or Ph.D. Some of these graduates said it's a great feeling to get recognized for something they've worked so hard for.
"It feels amazing and such a relief," says Nicole Gardner,  Masters Degree in Social Work recipient.
It feels like a heavy weight has been lifted off my shoulders," says Heidi Muller, Masters Degree in Social Work recipient.

While many of these students were very excited to receive their degrees, the main question going through many of their minds is: what happens next? Some graduates plan to work locally and others want to continue their education.

"I work for the university right now, and I plan on staying with them until I figure out where I want to go from there," says Muller.
"I plan to go to Ohio State and get a Ph.D in linguistics," says Elena Alvarez, Masters Degree in Spanish and Linguistics recipient.
They also honored the state's first female Secretary of State, Helen Holt. Holt received an honorary degree for her years of dedication and service to the Mountain State.
