You should be proud of your accomplishment. Earning a diploma is no small feat.
Welcome to the club of college graduates!
You now have a certificate that says you have a big, beautiful, smart brain.
No more finals, grades, or papers. School is out forever!
Life is forever different when you have a diploma.
A college diploma is more than a piece of paper. It's a pretty piece of paper that looks good in a frame on the wall. I hope you get a nice office to put it in.
Life just got easier and harder at the same time. I'll let you figure out what I mean by that.
You have proven that you can delay gratification for a period of years. I hope it all pays off now.
Now that you have your degree, you have everything you need. Nothing is holding you back any longer.
You are ending one long-term journey. You are beginning another long-term journey.
Graduating from college is a pretty big deal. Congratulations! You did it!
Your diploma is your new key to your new job. Congratulations and best wishes!
All good things must come to an end, unless you are planning on attending grad school. Congratulations and good luck in your future.
Uh oh, you accidentally graduated. Now what?
College graduation is the end of your excuse for not growing up, moving out, and getting a real job.
Congratulations! You have your degree. You have joined the club of the elite people who are set for life. I'm just joking. Now you have to work hard using all your education.
Graduation from college means you will only be able to get drunk a couple days a week now, or you’ll have to go to work with a hangover and be extremely tired. Congratulations to your liver for the extra life expectancy!
A lot of people warn you about gaining the “freshmen fifteen” when you first start college, but most people don’t tell you about the even more dangerous “graduate gut.” It happens when you leave college and you have to start dealing with the real world.
Congratulations on buying yourself the most expensive piece of paper you will probably ever own!
It doesn’t make sense if you really think about it. You spend years, thousands of dollars, and risk your health and safety to get a piece of paper.
Remember that you have an education, and that’s something that can’t be taken away from you unless you get brain damage. I don’t have to tell you that though because you are well educated.
Let’s hope your curricular activities made you smarter and your extracurricular activities made you wiser. You will be able to make smart and wise decisions about your future.
We’re wishing you a job with great pay so that you will be able to keep your head above water when you start paying your student loans.
We’re hoping that this ‘congratulations on your graduation’ card will be followed up with a ‘congratulations on your new job’ card.
Now that you’ve taken thirty classes in a major and have your diploma you are ready to start at a job that will teach you that nothing is as ideal as what you’ve been taught in college. Good luck with the culture shock.
I’ll be at least one person who doesn’t ask you the big question, “now what?”
Congratulations on finally getting the piece of paper that will unlock the doors that you will need opened.
You’re finally all grown up.
The significance of today is that it marks the next great chapter in the life of an amazing person. Congratulations on your graduation!
Congratulations on graduating in your regular style, “by the skin of your teeth.” It was just like everything you do.
This is your first big pay day for putting in a lot of hard work and determination. Keep working hard so you can keep getting pay days.
Today is the end of a good day’s work and the beginning of new possibilities.
