MADISON, Wis. - More than 2,000 students received degrees from the University of Wisconsin-Madison during the winter commencement ceremony on Dec. 16, 2017. About 1,150 graduates took part.

Chancellor Rebecca Blank told graduates that the number one predictor of their impact will not be genius or luck, but how hard they try and how hard they work.

“When you find that place where what you’re good at and what you’re passionate about come together, that is where your life’s work awaits you,” she said. “Choose opportunities that put you there.”

Here are the degree recipients from our area for the summer and fall of 2017:
