Celebrate Graduation on Facebook, Twitter, and Other Social Media

Commencement is an exciting time for many members of the Widener community. Of course, for our graduates, it’s a monumental accomplishment and the start of a new chapter. It’s also a special time for parents, relatives, friends, and Widener faculty and staff as they have supported the graduates over the years and now wish them the best for their future endeavors. Alumni, too, look back fondly on this time, remembering their own commencement and sharing a sense of pride with the new graduating class.

To capture the excitement and pride felt by so many during this time, we invite you to join us on Facebook and Twitter to commemorate the Class of 2016, wish them well, and join in their celebration. Using the hashtag #widener2016, we welcome you to share your thoughts, memories, well wishes, and graduation-related photos and videos. Connect with us on Facebook and Twitter for up-to-date information on commencement happenings.
