Share your celebration with your classmates, families, professors, Champlain staff, and the community! Snap photos of you in your cap and gown and show us pics of how you’re celebrating. As you take photos throughout commencement weekend, don’t forget to tag us at @champlainedu and @champlainonline and use the hashtag #ChampGrad to be featured on our social media tag wall during the ceremony.
