Hundreds of Quincy University students received their diplomas Sunday as they graduated college.
The ceremony was held at Pepsi Arena, and over three hundred graduates participated in the commencement activities.
The address was given by Reverend Thomas Nairn, the Senior Director of Ethics for the Catholic Health Association - who spoke to the students about measuring success.
"Whether we're Catholic or not, whether we're Christian or not, whether we're believers or not, that that's the only thing that matters. Who we are before God or who we really are in the depths of our hearts, that's the only measure of success," he said.
This also marked a special anniversary for the university - the one hundred fiftieth celebration of the commencement ceremony on campus.
