(Las Vegas, NV)  —  Nearly three-thousand UNLV students now have a diploma.

The Las Vegas campus marked its 50th commencement ceremony at the Thomas and Mack Center Sunday, with graduates ranging from 18 to 88-years old.

The first ceremony in 1964 had just 29 students.

One former student inspired the class of 2013.  Late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, who spent one year at UNLV, received an honorary degree.
