Let’s Get Social About Commencement Fall 2016

Help us commemorate the accomplishments of our Gator grads by sharing the experiences, photos and thoughts about the University of Houston-Downtown (UHD) 61st Commencement ceremony on social media. If you are graduating or merely there to support a friend or family member, we want to hear about it.

We encourage you to join the conversation before and during commencement by posting about it on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram — or wherever you enjoy being social — and tag your posts with the official hashtag: #UHDGrads.

Top six tips to make your post social media savvy:

  • Tag the post with the official commencement hashtag: #UHDGrads

  • Repost from our official social media accounts
  • Thank those who give you a shout-out; chime in on conversations; follow, like, share, and comment
