Albany - - For a lot of Darton College students, Wednesday was the day they've looked forward to for years. 

More than 200 students at Darton received their Associate Degrees Wednesday night.

The Fall Commencement exercises were full of excitement and applause as families cheered on their loved ones. One family told us tonight's graduation is bittersweet.  

"I'm glad to see it but it means she's closer to leaving home and that's not going to be a happy day but God bless her. She's done fine and she's on her way to Kennesaw State for the next couple of years. It's the beginning of a new life," say parents Vince & Fran Falcione.

Darton's College Choir performed the Star sprangled Banner and The Road Not Taken.

State Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner John Oxendine addressed the graduates about life after college.
