Commencement through the Years: Celebrating Graduates Then and Now
American Public University System’s Commencement is a special time for APUS. It is a chance for students, faculty, and staff to meet in-person and celebrate their impressive achievements. Commencement is made possible with help from dedicated APUS staff and volunteers. This Richard G. Trefry Archives exhibit chronicles the University’s past commencements, from the first graduation in the summer of 1996 when one student received their degree at the American Military University in Manassas, Virginia to today, celebrating thousands of graduates each year at the Gaylord National Convention Center at National Harbor.
