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.

It’s tradition! Graduates from @wittenberguniversity “stomp the seal” when they graduate. ❤️ Congrats Gracie! 🥰 . . #stomptheseal #graduate #collegegrad #collegelife #loveher #tigerup #chicago #futureisbright #graduation2020 #shegotajob #thelittleone #mybabyisgrowingup #collegegirls #windycity #leavingthenest #wittenberguniversity #❤️
Congratulations @wittenberg Class of 2020! Even though you didn’t get to physically #StompTheSeal today (💔) us alumni welcome you with open arms. And it’s just going to make your real stomp on your next campus visit that much sweeter! #TigerUp @wittalumni pic.twitter.com/PCxtbjQTHh

When you become a student at @wittenberguniversity, the students CANNOT step/stomp on the seal until you become a graduate unless you want some serious bad luck. 😬 This was my favorite moment of @haleyhyde24 stepping onto it for the very first time! Proud of you! ❤️ #classof2020 #wittenberguniversity #wittgrad #sisterpost #gradphotoshoot #stomptheseal #tigerup

Commencement, final step: it may have been 20 years ago, but I remember this well! Today, you and I are standing on a glossy print, but soon we will do it for real! CONGRATULATIONS, Wittenberg Tigers! #stomptheseal #wittenberg #wittenbergclassof2020 #wittenbergclassof2000 #tigerup
