A Gallery of Graduates
We're proud of every member of the 2009 graduating class at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee.
True, these are uncertain times for many. But there's inspiration to be found in the stories of our recent graduates. Those profiled here used a tried-and-true combination of hard work, study groups, friendship and work experience to succeed at UWM – and to jump-start promising careers with their new degrees.
We salute them in the true spirit of Panther Pride.
