HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAAY)-More then 300 students at Oakwood University are now graduates.

The commencement ceremony was Saturday night at the Von Braun Civic Center.  It was a packed house with family and friends watching the graduates receive their diploma's.

Some graduates like Imani Hutton expect to face a tough job market."Well I expect it to be pretty tough out there, but Oakwood has prepared me for a lot of things and how to deal with different people. So if you just pray hard and do what you have to do you will be ok " Hutton said.

Imani Hutton got her degree in biology and plans to go head to Washington DC this summer intern with several doctors at the Pentagon.
