Bay Path College held its 117th commencement ceremony Saturday afternoon at the Mass Mutual Center.
Nearly 800 students graduated from the college, and more than 600 of those students were at this year's ceremony.
Saturday's graduates were from 30 majors, including assistant physician studies for the first time.
School officials said the students are more than ready to go and make their mark on the community.
"It's wonderful seeing these students make their way into the world because they are going to make their mark," said Karen Wroblewski, director of communications for the college. "They're the next generation. They're the new practitioners in medicine. They're the new teachers that we're going to see in our schools, and we applaud and route them on from this day forward."
The principle of service and philanthropy were woven into the curriculum for this class of graduates.
