2017 was a busy year on campus.
Students worked hard toward their degrees while researchers conducted world-changing research in their fields. UWM welcomed new students and congratulated graduating ones. UWM’s photographers were busy capturing as much of the university’s story as possible.
With 14 schools and colleges and over 25,000 students spanning UWM’s historic campus, there’s no lack of subject matter. These photos taken throughout the year are some of our favorites of 2017.
