To our 2020 graduates: While this year’s graduation ceremony may be a little bit different, that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate and have just as much as fun. This year’s online graduation ceremony lets your friends and families from all around the world watch and celebrate your achievements together.
Just because you can’t celebrate the traditional way, doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate at all. This is still your moment and you deserve every bit of it. So, below we have some fun ideas you can do to safely celebrate your well-deserved 2020 graduation!
1. Host a Celebratory Food Party
When you’re hosting a small gathering with friends and family, the most important thing is spending time together and enjoying each other’s presence. But another important thing that always brings people together is food. Who doesn’t love food? Whether it’s a pizza, ice cream, or sushi party, everyone is sure to have a great time celebrating your graduation.
Plus, by buying locally, you’ll be supporting your own community and small businesses who may be struggling during this challenging time.
2. Pose for a Graduation Photoshoot
Who doesn’t like to pretend they’re on the cover of Vogue once in a while – and now is your time to shine! Go to your backyard, patio, local park, or even beach, and have a photoshoot with your graduation cap and gown. If you’ve been in sweats for the past few months, take this time to dress up, put on your favourite suit or dress, and your graduation cap and grown for photographs you can keep forever.
Feeling a little extra? Pick up some streamers, balloons, and other decorations to add a little flair to your photoshoot. This is your graduation so have fun while you’re at it and make some unforgettable memories.
Post your favourite shots on Facebook and Instagram to remember the day (and don’t forget to add the hashtag #SSCGRADS2020). Plus, you can send your shots to firstname.lastname@example.org for a chance to be featured on our social media accounts.
3. Invite Your Friends and Family to Watch Your Graduation Ceremony
The plus side to having an online convocation ceremony is that you can invite your siblings, parents, grandparents, friends, and even cousins from all around the world who you haven’t seen in a while. Even while living in a different country and time zone, they’ll be able to watch you ‘cross the stage’ and cheer you on.
