PISCATAWAY - Tens of thousands of people braved the rain to attend Rutgers University's commencement ceremony for the largest senior class in the school's history.

The ceremony was held at High Points Solutions Stadium on the Piscataway campus for the 14,302 graduating seniors.

The names of graduates were not read and diplomas were not handed out. Most of the students attended smaller, major-centric ceremonies throughout the past week.

It was the first Rutgers commencement for University President Robert Barchi.
