There's no better way to capture the experience of commencement than from the graduate's perspective.

Here is a firsthand look at Millikin University's Spring Commencement thanks to MU graduate Joe Barker who recorded his experience using a GoPro HD camera. Barker earned a Bachelor of Science in Information Systems.

Millikin honored 340 graduates during its 113th Commencement Ceremony on May 21 at the Decatur Civic Center.

The commencement ceremony featured remarks from Haley Hogenkamp, from St. Henry, Ohio, who graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business Management with a Minor in Music. Hogenkamp spoke on having a personal life of meaning and value.

Following Hogenkamp's speech, Millikin alumnus and member of the Board of Trustees Eric Zollinger '97, executive manager of sales for Douglas Elliman Development Marketing, delivered the commencement address.

Congratulations to the Millikin Class of 2017.
