Commencement 2017On Friday evening, May 12, the School honored its newest cohort of Ph.D. and MFA degree recipients with a reception and traditional Hooding Ceremony at the Gordon Dining and Event Center on campus. Dean Diana Hess welcomed and congratulated those being honored, while esteemed alumna Tashia Morgridge also spoke to the graduates. Morgridge later Friday evening was the recipient of an honorary degree from UW-Madison during the university’s commencement ceremony at the Kohl Center for students receiving doctoral, master of fine arts, and some professional degrees. The School’s Hooding Ceremony was such a big deal that Bucky Badger even took the time to check out the scene.
