The Ghosts of Commencements Past: UW-Green Bay graduation ceremonies through the years

It started humbly in UW Center’s Deckner Gymnasium in June of 1970. Seventy-eight members of the first graduating class received their diplomas from the fledgling University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. Twice a year since, the University community has gathered to honor and congratulate graduates in a formal ceremony.

On Saturday, Dec. 14, 2019, 432 students—members of the University’s 100th graduating class—will participate in Commencement, boosting UW-Green Bay’s alumni total to nearly 39,500. The official ceremony begins at 11:30 a.m. at the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts. Learn more about this year’s graduating class  and take a look back, in the gallery.
