Thousands of graduates walk at RIT commencement

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC-TV) - Over 3000 students graduated from RIT on Friday.

It was also the final commencement for President Bill Destler. His tenure as president is ending in June when he retires.

It's an exciting time for the graduates as they step outside of the college environment. Some of the students News 8 spoke to are both happy and nervous about what's to come.

"I'm sad to leave actually, but it's exciting. We're all thrilled," said biomedical engineering graduate Mike Kormos.

"It was a long ride for sure, but never any doubts," said engineering grad Nicole Sauter.

Number one thing we heard graduates say they will miss-- their friends. Number two was the pizza!
