COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio State University is graduating its largest class on record.

The university says it will award 11,235 degrees during spring commencement Sunday. The event is being held in Ohio Stadium at noon.

It’s the third time in four years such a record has been set. The 2016 class surpasses a record 11,040 graduates in 2015. That figure topped the previous record of 10,642 graduates set in 2012.

The university attributes the record-sized classes to its efforts to attract top students and to work to retain them throughout their college careers. Ohio State has also added support for students as they select majors and class schedules.

The school’s commencement weekend also included the commissioning of 25 ROTC cadets.
