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

Each graduate will receive a "Welcome to the Family" card following their Commencement ceremony. We ask that you, as a member of that family, write a brief note to new graduates filled with advice, motivation, words of wisdom or anything else 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.

Here's how you can take part in this 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 that you may inscribe yourself and send back.

How will graduates receive your message?

Traditionally, grads pick up a card as part of their Commencement ceremony. As with so much else in the age of COVID-19, those plans have changed this year. A few weeks after their virtual graduation ceremony, new alumni will receive a package containing their diploma, an alumni pin and more—including a randomly selected “Welcome to the Family” card.

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