UW-Madison spring commencement stays at stadium

MADISON, Wis. (AP) _ Spring commencement at the University of Wisconsin-Madison will return to Camp Randall Stadium.

Previously graduation ceremonies were held in shifts at the Kohl Center. But, because of the success of the spring commencement earlier this year, university officials have decided to stick with the stadium.

Six-thousand undergraduates and masters' students, along with 44,000 friends and family celebrated at Camp Randall last May. Chancellor Rebecca Blank says honoring the graduates in a place so steeped with tradition is memorable.

The 2015 ceremony will take place on Saturday, May 16 at noon.

As in previous years, doctoral and professional students will celebrate in the Kohl Center on the Friday before.
