A new graduating class from the University of Wisconsin- Stevens Point is ready to head into the workforce. More than 1,100 students graduated during two separate commencement ceremonies on Saturday.
“We’re so thrilled to as they transition into their career or some of them continuing education,” said Jacqui Guthrie, assistant director of the Academic and Career Advising Center at the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point.
Many of the students are eager to get their degrees.
“I’m feeling great. I’m excited and all the work finally paid off and I’m ready to go,” said Luke Trittelwitz, a graduate.
“It’s kind of a little bittersweet. I’m happy to move on in the world but I’m also sad to leave this place I’ve grown so much,” said Colin Nygren, another graduate.
