Miller graduates from UW-Madison

MADISON. Wis. — Nearly 7,000 students received degrees during the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s spring commencement ceremonies, held May 10-11. Among those receiving degrees was Marissa Miller, who graduated from the College of Letters and Science with a Bachelor of Science with honors in anthropology and history. Miller graduated with distinction.

The ceremony for doctoral, MFA and Medical Degree graduates was May 10 at the Kohl Center; bachelor’s, master’s and law graduates received their degrees May 11 at Camp Randall.

The commencement speaker was NFL superstar and former Badger J.J. Watt, who told graduates that the path to your dreams often does not go the way you imagine it will.

“When you figure your dream out, remember it will not be a straight path,” he said. “Stay committed. Never lose sight of what it is you want to accomplish. Don’t be afraid to ask for help along the way, and don’t be afraid to help others along their path.”
