The names of more than 1,600 candidates for degrees for the fall 2011 semester at the University of Kansas have been announced by the Office of the University Registrar, including Wade T Jones, from Gouverneur.

He was awarded a Master of Science/Geology.

Graduate and undergraduate degrees are conferred in December based on work completed during the fall semester. Because KU conducts only one formal Commencement each year, many students graduating in the fall or summer terms will return on Sunday, May 13, for the traditional walk down the Hill into Memorial Stadium for the ceremony.

Five of KU's colleges and schools conducted recognition programs or hooding ceremonies in December to honor those planning to graduate in fall 2011: the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the School of Business, the School of Education, the School of Engineering and the William Allen White School of Journalism and Mass Communications.
