We at UMSL Daily loved catching glimpses of the celebrations of the nearly 1,000 University of Missouri–St. Louis students who earned their degrees this semester as well as the 2020 and spring and summer 2021 graduates who came together for the university’s first in-person commencement ceremonies in two years.

But we also enjoyed the many joyous social media posts honoring the occasion by UMSL graduates and their friends – a few of which we’ve included below.

Whether you celebrated in-person or virtually, congratulations to all the graduates! This is a huge accomplishment, and we’re proud of you.

Diana Luna Dizon

“Fall of 2017 was a tough time in my life and so I decided to move back to my hometown to finish my Bachelor of Science in Biology.

With the obstacles of the divorce, pandemic and carrying a child in my belly I didn’t think I was going to finish. With the support of family, friends and Bob I finally finished my BS in Biology and a minor in chemistry. Thank you for being my rock, mom, dad, Zach, Bob and all the family&friends I vented to about my classes 😅

Hey look ma I made it 💕” –Diana Luna Dizon, BS biology
