NOTRE DAME, Ind. (WNDU) - A commencement ceremony for students graduating from Indiana University-South Bend was held Tuesday evening.
The ceremony took place at the Joyce Center on the campus of the University of Notre Dame, and more than 1,000 graduates received their degrees.
NewsCenter 16 got a chance to talk with one of the graduates about how he's feeling now, as he prepares for his next step in life.
"[It] feels fantastic, it's been a long time coming," Daniel Gutierrez said. "I think I speak for all of us when I say we're just happy to be here. We're proud to be here"
"What's next after this?" Gutierrez was asked.
"I got a full time position waiting for me. I actually started that yesterday, so shoutout Lighthouse Autism Center!"
The University of Notre Dame's commencement will take place May 19.
