It's graduation time, so let the celebrations begin. This year, things may be different due to COVID-19, but that doesn't mean the graduation festivities are canceled. As a matter of fact, it seems like more and more important life events are happening online, which is why part of your graduation gift should be some Instagram captions for virtual graduation pictures.

Between your school's virtual festivities, your extended family's Zoom celebration, and online events, you've got your calendar filled with reasons to wear your cap and gown. That's why you don't have time to stop and come up with your own captions. Plus, you've worked so hard to earn that diploma. It would be unfair to make you work more in order to post those adorable graduation selfies and Zoom screenshots.

Think of these graduation captions as a grad gift just for you. Copy and paste whatever quote perfectly captures all those feels you have about moving on to your next journey. Then, share them with whatever pics you've got from your graduation day at home.

Just because it's a virtual ceremony, that doesn't mean you can't get totally dressed up in your cap and gown. Go all out with decorations and don't forget to grab a few tissues for the happy tears.
