There was nothing but sunshine, smiles and a few happy tears during the College of Charleston’s three days of commencement ceremonies May 6-8, 2021.

After a year of challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, the completion of the Class of 2021’s academic journey was a welcome celebration. With a total of five graduation ceremonies, including the College’s first-ever commencement at Patriots Point Soccer Stadium in Mount Pleasant, the graduates’ time at the College and their resilient spirits in the face of hardship were aptly lauded.

Take a look at some of the standout moments from the ceremonies.

Once again, congrats to the Class of 2021!
