This weekend, thousands of University of Wisconsin-Madison students will throw on their respective gowns, be smothered by tons of family and friends, listen to J.J. Watt’s commencement address and ultimately walk across the stage and graduate.
Looking back, it will be 13 years since I graduated from UW, and I am
FREAKING OUT not freaking out that the anniversary of said graduation is now, uh, a teenager.
Below are just some of the graduates this weekend who were Wisconsin student-athletes.
Check out this week’s Varsity magazine issue, as it also shows women’s basketball standout Marsha Howard and men’s track and field Morgan McDonald who will also graduate in this year’s class. A busy man this weekend, McDonald won the 10,000 meter race during the Big Ten Outdoor Track and Field championship on Friday in Iowa City.
