CHICO, Calif.-- Over 3,760 undergraduate and 250 graduate students will participate in California State University, Chico’s 129th Commencement ceremonies this week, beginning Wednesday, May 15, and continuing through Sunday, May 19. Each graduating student received up to six tickets for Friday's ceremony and seven tickets for Saturday and Sunday's cermonies.

Local hotels in Chico including the Ramada Plaza, Oxford Suites, Residence Inn, Best Western Heritage Inn, Hotel Diamond and Courtyard by Marriott are all expected to be sold out.

Hotels say they've been busier than ever because of the Camp Fire and completely booked ahead of the graduation ceremonies.

"We are very very busy since the fire started," said Ramada Plaza general manager Albert Bashier.

He said Ramada Plaza hosted many guests  who lost their homes in the Camp Fire and as well as Cal Fire.

With graduation this week, Bashier said "Hopefully we'll sell out , its very exciting for us to have all those parents and kids who are graduating from Chico state"
