Here’s a photo gallery from Sacred Heart University’s 50th commencement ceremony Sunday, which took place at the Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport.

More than 1,900 undergraduate and graduate degrees were awarded by the Fairfield-based university at the ceremonies over the weekend.

“Continue to chase your dreams unfettered by the naysayers. May the knowledge and experiences you gained here enable you to be women and men for others,” SHU President John J. Petillo told the crowd Sunday.

“Class of 2016, you have made your mark upon this University,” he said. “I thank you for that gift. Through your learning, your community service and your student participation in athletics, performing arts and clubs, you have enriched our culture for future classes to build upon.”

The keynote speaker at Saturday’s graduate commencement was Cardinal Rodriguez Maradiaga, archbishop of Tegucigalpa, Honduras.
