Congrats to all the 2017 graduates. Here's a look back on the great week.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! It’s the time when thousands of hours of tears, sweat and brain power is celebrated with a degree of achievement. So here’s a look back on the sights and scenes of the University of Utah’s 148th graduation occasion, where a school-record 8,566 students earned 9,118 diplomas.
