MADISON, Wis. - About 7,700 students received degrees from the University of Wisconsin-Madison on May 13 and 14, including students from this area.

There were two live ceremonies: one at the Kohl Center on May 13 for doctoral, MFA and medical students; and one at Camp Randall on May 14 for undergraduate, law and master's students.

The commencement speaker was U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Linda Thomas-Greenfield, who encouraged students to take risks.


"If you stay comfortable - if you stay in your comfort zone, sticking to what you know - then you are making a bet," she said. "You are betting that your life, and the world, will stay the same. And let me tell you, you will lose that bet every time."
