UW-Madison to hold graduates-only commencement ceremonies at Camp Randall

MADISON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- University of Wisconsin-Madison officials announced Thursday, March 11, plans to hold in-person commencement ceremonies for spring 2021 graduates at Camp Randall Stadium. 

According to the UW, two ceremonies are planned for Saturday, May 8 — one for undergraduates, the other for all graduate degree candidates.

“Our students have lost so much during this pandemic,” says Chancellor Rebecca Blank. “While I am disappointed that it is still not possible for all our Badger family members to attend, I am very pleased that our graduates will again gather and celebrate together in our commencement tradition.

“To family members and friends, I know many of you wanted to be in Camp Randall as well. Please know that we are working hard to make sure there are many unique ways for you to participate in this joyous occasion.”

UW-Madison says, the ceremonies will include speeches, student entertainment, and the conferral of degrees. The university will be announcing the spring commencement speaker soon.

The ceremonies on May 8 will be only for 2021 spring graduates. The university is planning an in-person celebration for all 2020 spring and winter graduates for this upcoming fall. More details on the fall celebration will be released as plans come together.
