Albany- The graduates walked across the stage one by one, each one happy they finally earned a degree.
"It's over, I'm so relieved. I'm proud, happy, anxious. I want to work, ready to work, ready to make money everything," says Social Work graduate Crystal Martin.
"I'm just happy to be making my parents proud and to be moving on to something new and different," adds Early Childhood Education graduate Christina Lewis.
Thousands of parents and friends cheered as the names were called.
"It's just something you dream for and that's my baby girl, so I am very happy. I'm blessed and thankful to see this day come through," says Wilbur Dennis, father of Haneefah Muhammed.
The celebration was extra special for one family. Mr. and Mrs. Green and their daughter Christi Davis all graduated Saturday with a Specialist Degree in Education.
Carrie Green says she and her husband, Isreal, had the same grade point average. They made all A's and one B, while their daughter got all A's and two B's.
"Of course I did more than they did because I had to maintain making sure they did their work and keep the house going," claims Mrs. Green.
So, will the family that studies together work together? "No, I don't think we'll end up at the same school. No we won't," laughs Isreal Green.
The graduating family says it was an experience they were happy to have and will never forget.
The Green's say their oldest daughter, a teacher in North Carolina, will enter the same program her family just completed in the fall.
