STEVENS POINT (WAOW) -

The University of Wisconsin Stevens Point is celebrating a record number of graduates this spring.

School leaders say 1,427 students received their diplomas.

That's the most in the school's 120-year history.

The new alumni shared the moment with family, friends, and professors.

"It's exciting, it's anticipatory for the future and it's really great to look around and see all of my friends with their families and celebrate with them after all of the hard work," said Valerie Landowski, a graduate and student speaker at the ceremony.

The largest graduating class held two commencement ceremonies on Saturday, one in the morning and one in the afternoon.
