TUCSON, Ariz. -- After four years of tests, papers, classes and parties, more than 5,000 undergrads were conferred at Sunday's commencement ceremony at McKale Center.

UA President Robert Shelton presided over the ceremony which included thousands of eager students and their cheering parents.

Former Tucson news personality and in-coming Today Show anchor, Savannah Guthrie, gave grads some advice.

"Even if the thing you think you want to much doesn't happen overnight it doesn't mean it's not going to happen the important thing is to get on your path, to set big dreams for yourself and take all of the lessons you learned here at the university," said UA alumna Savanah Guthrie from NBC News.

Guthrie graduated from the U of A in 1993 with a journalism degree.
