When commencement speaker and AOL co-founder Steve Case addressed the 35,000 people in attendance at Sunday’s graduation ceremony, he said he thought the Class of 2013 graduates might be feeling one thing — bittersweet.
“You’re delighted to have completed the requirements to graduate, proud to be receiving your degrees and excited to be embarking on the next chapter in your lives,” he said.
“But at the same time, you may be a little nervous. You have your diploma, but you aren’t quite sure what the future holds.”
And as the graduates, alumni, speakers and attendees took to social media platforms to share their thoughts and reactions to the day’s events, many of them shared the very feeling Case mentioned.
Below is a compilation of some of the day’s tweets.
