5 of the best social media commencement campaigns

Graduation is a big deal; students and their families spend years working towards it so when the day finally rolls round the sense of excitement in the air makes perfect sense. For universities, graduation is an unmissable opportunity to both celebrate the achievement of their students while also promoting what’s on offer at your institution. 

A few weeks ago we shared some of our favourite graduation Instagram’s and today we wanted to share a few more incredibly creative gradation posts from universities across the US:

University of Washington

The University of Washington always have a stellar social media presence but they have really outdone themselves in honour of their graduating class of 2015. In fact, we have selected three of their posts as we couldn't choose!


Think you’re ready for the commencement ceremony in Husky Stadium tomorrow, grads and families? Check our list! #UWGrad15

California State University, Chico 

 Before commencement, graduating students were asked what they would tell their freshmen selves; the end result is a harmonious mix of funny and poignant responses. The really clever aspect of this video is that it not only promotes graduation but admissions too! Great work Chico State!

 Oregon State University

This is a really simple yet effective way for a university to share all the relevant information (including what hashtag students should be using) about commencement in a fun way.
