MADISON, WI – More than 3,320 students received degrees from the University of Wisconsin-Madison during the winter commencement ceremony on Dec. 16, 2018. About 1,300 graduates took part.
Keynote speaker Allan “Bud” Selig, commissioner emeritus of Major League Baseball and a 1956 UW-Madison grad, told graduates that when he was in their shoes more than 60 years ago, he figured he’d one day be a history professor. But that wasn’t his passion, he said. He dreamed instead of “a baseball life.” He persevered to make it happen, moving a bankrupt Seattle franchise to his hometown and founding the Milwaukee Brewers.
“I knew if I were to live my dream, I had to be focused, I had to be resolute, and I had to be ready and willing to take a chance should an opportunity ever present itself,” he said.’
Here are the degree recipients from your area for the summer and fall of 2018:
