Hard work has paid off for some Albany State students.
More than 400 students graduated today with bachelor degrees. Friends and family of the graduates where there to cheer them on as they walked the state. One administrator says there's been a lot of changes at Albany State in the last four years.
"They've seen our campus change as these kids came in we've built new buildings on our campus and our student center. So there kind of the culmination of a lot of years of hard work," said Clifford Porter
This class was one of ASU's largest graduating classes.
