Names of the graduates are available at this link, by state, hometown, program of study and major(s). Some candidates do not have a hometown listed as they either did not list a hometown on their diploma order form or did not turn in a form.

Lawyer, author, community leader and First Amendment advocate Jan Neuharth, daughter of USD alumnus Allen Neuharth, will give the keynote address and also receive an honorary doctorate degree.
