OAKLAND, Calif., Jan. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Oaksterdam University ("OU"), America's first cannabis college, announces the Class of 2019 Graduation and Celebration will be held on Saturday, February 1st, 2020. The ceremony is for students that completed classes in 2019, and previous students who haven't yet had the opportunity to walk with their graduating class.

"In our twelve years as a school, this is the first time we are hosting an alumni reunion, making it an evening not to be missed," says OU Chancellor Dale Sky Jones. "This is an opportunity for students past and present to network with graduates and industry leaders, reconnect with their peers, recruit, and build new relationships. I personally can't wait to hear all the success stories from our alumni; how their Oaksterdam experience and cannabis education has benefited their lives and careers. Let's snack, smoke, and be mary (jane, that is)!"
