TUCSON - About 6,000 students graduated from the University of Arizona Friday.
For the first time in decades, the main ceremony was at Arizona Stadium.
Many students like Bianca Cifanzo already have jobs.
"There's always a challenge in that," she said, "but if you're dedicated enough, you can find it. You have to do all the interviews, do your thing and you'll find a job."
About half of college graduates in Arizona have student loan debt averaging about $20,000, according to a CNN Money article.
Corey Malley is one of the unlucky graduates.
"So many student loans," he said. "It's going to be a long road."
A former Miss Arizona, Katy Bulkley, was more fortunate.
"I am actually graduating debt free because of the Miss America organization," she said, "as well as my family and friends."
