Wisconsin School of Business graduates got to see their names in lights during a special finale to commencement weekend: the 1,094 Business Badgers Light the Way Forward live stream.
Using projection mapping, WSB illuminated the Park Street façade of Grainger Hall with animated graphics on Saturday, May 9 from 8:30 p.m. until midnight. The rotating graphics included the names of every WSB graduate along with congratulatory messages, unifying themes, and quotes from the School community.
The project was live-streamed for remote viewing and remains available on WSB’s Facebook page.
Thousands of supporters tuned in to the live stream. Here are some of their reactions:
“I am so blown away by how beautiful this is, and to see our daughter’s name
in the light show from CT! Priceless. Thank you.”

“Congrats, everyone!! We did it!”
“What a great tribute to graduates!”
“So awesome! Speaks volumes about how the school feels about [its] students.
Can’t wait for [my son] to start his BBA program in the fall. On, Wisconsin!”
