Strive to be part of something bigger than your #selfie.

Before conferring degrees to the Class of 2014, the University of Kansas' Chancellor, Bernadette Gray-Little, took a selfie. This was no ordinary selfie. Take a look and see why our graduating class is the embodiment of being part of something bigger than themselves. Congratulations and #RockChalk!

  1. Commencement is full of #KUtraditions: The first-time #KUgrads walk through the World War II Memorial Campanile, the walk down the Hill into Memorial Stadium in front of friends and family, and #selfies.

    Since 2009, KU has asked #KUgrads to take selfies to commemorate the occasion. 
  2. This year, the Chancellor had a surprise with a point.
  3. Then, #KUgrads had a chance to take their own selfies.
  4. Soon, our inbox was overflowing with emails full of excitement, joy and enthusiasm.

  8. The chancellor left us with one thing, to be bigger than our selfies. So of course we took a selfie. #kugrads #100happydays #day63
