There’s enough stress on graduation day. Students have all sorts of butterflies in their stomachs. And those parents and loved ones watching are equally anxious for them.
Naturally, we at OnCampus thought commencement would be an ideal time to surprise the soon-to-be graduates with a last-second assignment: Write a personal Thank You letter to their loved ones sitting in the audience. Then, we’d find the families and friends, and hand-deliver the letter. We’d also film the reaction.
What we captured was a raw, candid look into the lives of a graduate’s family. Graduation day is one of the happiest moments in a student’s life. We are thankful for those families who let us share their joy.
