Florida A&M University students were receiving their diplomas at the Leon County Civic Center. Many of the students say they are ready to venture out into the job market, while some are jumping back into school.
Li Zhaow, a FAMU graduate, says there were many obstacles to overcome, which made the moment that much more.
"My daughter departed from me five years. I come to U.S., she got 10 times denied and had to stay with my parents in China."
There were close to 600 students participating in the commencement.
