New This Year: Post Photos, Social Media Messages to Nickerson Videoboard

Share memories, texts on big screen from noon to 1 p.m. Sunday

In the tagboard above, view photos and messages from members of the Class of 2017 and their friends and families. The tagboard will remain active from noon to 1 p.m. on Commencement Sunday, May 21.

This year marks BU’s 144th Commencement. But Sunday’s ceremony will feature something brand-new—a chance to post and view user-generated social media content live on Nickerson Field’s videoboard in the hour leading up to the start of the ceremony, which begins at 1 p.m.

Members of the Class of 2017, parents, friends, and family members are invited to share memories and good wishes before a crowd of about 20,000 at Nickerson by posting photos and messages on their public social media accounts using #BU2017. Only those with public Instagram and Twitter accounts are able to participate. If you have a Facebook account, make sure your post visibility is set to public.
