There is perhaps no better indicator of the tremendous growth of Waubonsee Community College and the impact on the community than the number of students that graduate each year. Waubonsee's first graduating class in 1968 was only 16 students. Just two years later, the 1970 graduating class was 99 strong. By 1974, the total was 261 graduates. Commencement programs include a list of associate degree graduates, and College personnel involved in the ceremony. The Archive Center has a nearly complete run of these programs.
