Relive UWL's spring commencement

Posted 7 a.m. Thursday, May 25, 2023

UWL's newest graduates received their degrees Sunday, May 14, at the La Crosse Center.

Nearly 2,000 students received degrees at UWL's spring commencement Sunday, May 14 — a chance to reflect on their time at UWL, while preparing to take the next step in their lives and careers. They came from different places, pursued different dreams and faced different challenges along the way. What they share is a lifelong connection to UWL and a desire to use their education to make the world a better place. Wherever they go from here, they will always have a home at UWL.
