Join your fellow Pointers in welcoming the newest Point grads to the Alumni family!

As new graduates leave UWSP and journey out into the world, we want to give them a little inspiration by officially welcoming them to the Pointer Alumni family. Each graduate will receive a "Welcome to the Family" card after their commencement ceremony. We ask that you, as a member of our Pointer family, write a brief note to new graduates filled with advice, motivation, words of wisdom, or anything else that you would have wanted to know at that age. 

Include any personal information that you are comfortable sharing, should new alumni want to reach out to you. Your name, grad year or relation to UWSP, city, and email address would all be fairly standard, although certainly not required.

There are three different ways to take part in this new tradition:

  1. Fill out the text box at the bottom of this page with your words of wisdom and the Alumni Office will print your message on a card.
  2. Email with your current address and the Alumni Office will mail you a card to write on and send back.
  3. Stop into the Alumni Office on campus and pick a card up.

How will the graduates get the cards?

It's all random! Graduates will select a message from a wall of cards awaiting them as they leave the Commencement ceremony. Your message should be written so it can be enjoyed by any of our new alumni. Please fill out as many cards as you like! This tradition only works with the help of our extended Pointer family.

Thank you for making our newest graduates feel welcome, and reminding them that that they are part of our Pointer family – no matter where, no matter what.
