San Diego Latino activists Carlos and Linda LeGerrette will be honored as distinguished alumni.

The ceremony is set for 4 p.m. at the University of San Diego's Jenny Craig Pavilion.

Commencement will continue at San Diego State University, where the colleges of business administration, arts and letters, and engineering will hold graduation ceremonies beginning at 8 a.m. in Viejas Arena.

The University of San Diego School of Law will hold graduation on campus beginning at 9 a.m.

Commencement at Cal State San Marcos was postponed until next weekend because of a wildfire that burned the hills behind campus and caused the school to be evacuated.
