VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Graduation season is upon us and for some students at Valdosta State University, their walk across the stage will be a little bit more bittersweet than others.

The spring 2018 graduating class from the College of Art and Sciences will be the last class to receive their degrees from the school.

It will now be split into two new schools, with two new deans.

Christine Zeigler will be the top graduate of the College of Arts and Sciences and said she's glad to be part of such a rich legacy.

"Just seeing everyone that's come out of it, it's been really great to know that we're doing really big things and just seeing where we're all going," said Zeigler.

"I think the splitting of the College of Arts and Sciences while on the one hand, it's kind of sad for me because it's what I devoted the last 10 years of my career to, it's also exciting in the sense that there are new possibilities," said College of Arts and Sciences Dean Dr. Connie Richards.

Richards has been with the school since 2008 and will be retiring at the end of June.

The decision to create the College of Science and Mathematics and Humanities and Social Sciences came late last year.
