You've been counting down the days until graduation, and it's finally here. It's a major milestone in your life, and prime time to celebrate all the hard work you've put into your degree the past four years. As exciting as the day is, it'll be over within the blink of an eye. You'll want to make the most of it, and you'll be busy moving your tassel to the other side, tossing your cap in the air, and hugging all of your college BFFs as if you'll never let go. Don't let those memories fade, and instead, take as many pictures as possible and pair them with graduation quotes for Instagram.
I still look back at pictures of my graduation, and it just reminds me of all the good times I experienced. From pictures of me and my friends, to candid shots my mom took of me walking across the stage, I cherish them all. It's much easier reminiscing when you have the pictures on Instagram, and a beautiful photo deserves an equally as wonderful caption to go with it.
For graduation, you'll want something that perfectly describes your feels. A great quote is a simple way to express all of that with a few words, so when you're in a rush to the afterparty, use any of these 25 caption ideas. It's your big day, so live in the moment and keep those memories forever.
