Commencement: social edition

posted by Meaghan Milliorn

I love commencement, and one of my favorite things is seeing others’ excitement play out on social media. We asked students to use certain hashtags in their posts on Instagram and Twitter leading up to the big day, and then we put those pictures and posts in a video that played on the big screen before the ceremonies.

It was nice seeing grads thank professors or family members for helping them get to this moment. It was also fun to see what grads were doing to get ready for their big day!

Thanks to everyone who helped make this video and congratulations to our fall graduates!
