Some graduation traditions are more than a hundred years old. Others are brand new. For UW-Stevens Point, December graduation marked the start of a new tradition.

After the graduates received their diplomas, they lined up to touch the miniature wooden cupola, an iconic symbol of the university. From now on the students will first touch the cupola as freshmen at convocation and then one last time as seniors at graduation.
