ELLENSBURG--Done with college and on to the real world.

It's graduation weekend for 1,700 students at Central Washington University.

Saturday was the largest graduation day of the year for CWU.

More than 1300 students walked in two ceremonies.

About 9,000 people attended; Washington State Patrol said Interstate 90 was backed up from Medical Lake to Cheney with parents and friends headed to the ceremonies.

About 400 more students will graduate Sunday from CWU's west-side campus in Seattle.
