COLUMBUS, Ohio - Ten more Buckeyes on the Ohio State men’s swimming and diving team - past performers and those from the 2011-12 team - received their bachelor's degree from The Ohio State University Sunday in commencement exercises at Ohio Stadium. All of the graduating seniors on the men’s swimming and diving team received their degrees in four years at Ohio State.

Ohio State's men’s swimming and diving members were among a university-record 10,642 individuals who received degrees and certificates at the ceremony. Ambassador Susan E. Rice, U.S. Representative to the United Nations, delivered the commencement address in front of approximately 50,000 guests.

Among the spring quarter graduates are Andrew Elliott - the 2012 Big Ten Medal of Honor Winner and 2012 First Team Academic All-American and Sean Moore, the 2012 Men’s Varsity O Scholarship Award Winner. Both Elliott and Moore each earned NCAA Postgraduate Scholarships this spring.

The 10 new graduates increase to 13 the number of Ohio State swimming and diving team members who have received their degree during the 2011-12 academic year.

The ceremony was the university's 400th commencement and Ohio State's last on the academic quarter system.
