Still Worth C​elebrating!​

A look at how graduating CSU students across the state are commemorating amid the pandemic.


This spring, more than 100,000 California State University students earned degrees that will positively impact their lives and the lives of their families forever.

Even so, CSU students demonstrated a resilient and positive spirit, finding opportunities to celebrate their success. Here’s a look at the unique ways the 2020 graduating class of the nation’s largest four-year university honored this rite of passage and marked their personal milestones.
