Celebrate the Class of 2020 on Social Media! 

From congratulatory videos to social media graphics, here's everything you need to celebrate our UW-Stevens Point Class of 2020 graduates virtually! 

Commencement is a time to celebrate the accomplishments of our students and their promising futures. Although our celebrations are a bit different this semester, there are many who helped make reaching this point possible-especially parents, family and friends and other supporters of our graduates.

The 1,300 members of our spring graduating class have made it this far in large measure, because of the commitment and the associated sacrifices from faculty, staff, family and friends to help them realize their dream. 

Graduates, earning a college degree is a major milestone. We are proud as ever to help you celebrate and look forward to an in-person ceremony in the future.
