15 Quotes Celebrating Recent Grads

As we reach graduation season, we know many of you are excited to put on a cap and gown, walk across a stage, be handed a well-deserved diploma, and flip that tassel to the other side.

Graduations are kind of a big deal. They’re the culmination of a whole lot of hard work, education, and growth. If you’re finishing a degree this year, think back to when you started working on it. Whether you’re graduating from high school, college, or another program, we bet you felt like an entirely different person when you first started out.

We think you deserve a lot of pomp and circumstance (yes, the song but also the real thing). Your achievements should be acknowledged and celebrated! So order a cake, put up a tent in the backyard, and invite your family and friends over to celebrate with you. If you have some printed graduation photos and a framed diploma to show off, even better!

While it’s an exciting celebration of your achievements, graduation also means the beginning of a new chapter in your life. Now that you have the degree you’ve been working so hard for, you may be starting a new job, maybe even moving to a new place. Or maybe you’re starting over and taking on a new degree by going to college. Whatever is in front of you, we know you’ll be successful at achieving the goals you set for yourself. Aim high, work hard, and have fun along the way!
