UW-Green Bay graduate
UW-Green Bay marked its 41st mid-year Commencement Dec. 18 with graduation ceremonies at the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts. A record 400 students were eligible to graduate. An estimated 300 donned caps and gowns to march in the ceremony. For snapshots from the day’s festivities, click here.

David TrostAmong the graduates were David Trost, who began his quest for a college degree in 1965. He has an associate degree, but wanted to complete one of his life’s goals — a bachelor’s degree. UW-Green Bay’s Adult Degree program helped him achieve his goal, and even a bit earlier than anticipated. Read about him, and find Fox 11 coverage, click here.

Alumni Commencement ReceptionAfter the ceremony, a number of graduates joined the Alumni Association with a celebration at Titletown.
