#StompTheSeal: Virtual Senior Celebration 2020

With the virtual conferral of degrees on May 16, some in the Class of 2020 still found ways to #StompTheSeal

Wittenberg University's annual Commencement ceremony includes numerous cherished traditions. Among the most popular is the opportunity to stomp the University's treasured Seal in the historic heart of campus. Watch Video

Despite moving to a virtual event, some graduates made their way campus, May 16, to take their shot at stomping the Seal, while others found creative ways at home, using special prints of the Seal.
