STEVENS POINT, Wis (WSAU) Congratulations to the 583 winter-graduates from U-W Stevens Point. They got their diplomas on Saturday. The school held two winter graduation ceremonies because of the large number of mid-year graduates. Students who wish are also allowed to attend the larger spring graduation next May.
The ceremony was held at the Quadt Fieldhouse as other students prepared to leave campus for winter break.
Many students said it was a difficult time to enter the job market. Some said they are working retail jobs or are moving back in with parents until they have better career opportunities.
