A total of 685 students are eligible to participate in North Dakota State University's winter graduation this week.

The commencement ceremony is at 5 p.m. Friday in the Fargodome. Nearly 400 students, including 42 master's degree and 34 doctoral degree candidates, intend to participate in the ceremony.

Student Haley Watson, a civil engineering major and member of Bison Ambassadors, will be the speaker. Honorary doctorate degrees will be presented to John Dean, Sheldon Ellig and Harold Newman.

Dean is retired after a career in agriculture, owning a feeder cattle operation and farm near Hatton, N.D. He serves on the NDSU Development Foundation board of trustees.

Ellig is owner of Stop-N-Go, which he started in 1974. Ellig and his company were the driving force behind the construction of NDSU's track-and-field facilities and pledged $1 million for the renovation of the Bison Sports Arena.
