Congratulations to Illinois State University’s class of 2015!

About 3,550 students participated in spring commencement ceremonies on Friday, May 8, and Saturday, May 9. Throughout the weekend, our newest alumni and their families and friends were sharing celebratory photos, tweets, videos, and posts on social media, all using the official commencement hashtag #RedbirdProud.

Here are some of our favorite #RedbirdProud posts from commencement weekend, via Storify. See more official photos from commencement on our Flickr page.
