Rutgers University is poised to graduate the largest class in school history.

School officials say the class of 2013 includes an estimated 14,302 graduates from the university's New Brunswick-Piscataway, Newark and Camden campuses.

But only a few thousand of them are expected to attend Sunday afternoon's system-wide ceremony at High Point Solutions Stadium in Piscataway. Most Rutgers students will attend smaller graduation ceremonies with their schools and colleges this week, where they will pick up their degrees.

University President Robert Barchi will preside over his first commencement and confer all undergraduate and graduate degrees.
