Congratulations to All of Our Graduates
On May 11 and 12, Columbia College Chicago held its Commencement ceremonies at the historic Auditorium Theatre to honor the graduating students of the class of 2019 and three honorary degree recipients. Nearly 1,800 graduate and undergraduate students were honored in four ceremonies over two days. Congratulations to all of our graduates as well as the families, friends, and loved ones who came out to support them!
Here are a few of the hightlights from the weekend:

I graduated yesterday! So grateful for my support system. The past 4 years at @columbiachi have been amazing for me. I’ve met so many great people and learned a lot. I wouldn’t change anything. It’s surreal to have a degree and I’m excited for the present and the future! 👨🏾🎓
