These graduates celebrated in the most millennial way: sending each other photos on airdrop

It’s that time of the year again: graduation season! Aside from the grad photos, long thank-you posts, and unemployment Tweets, there’s one more thing that always fills our timelines — the creative ways graduates choose to celebrate. From senior pranks to creative caps, graduates never seem to run out tricks to amuse us.

Last weekend, De La Salle University held its commencement exercises for the College of Liberal Arts. During a lull in the ceremony, students started congratulating each other. Only their form of congratulations wasn’t in the typical face-to-face way. Instead, they started airdropping photos to any phone that was accepting photos (from contacts and non-contacts alike).

Trey Remulla, the Political Science graduate who started the trend, tweeted:

people airdropping each other congratulation photos here at the dlsu graduation is the real spirit of animo.

Trey shared to us that:

This started around the time people were marching to get their “diplomas” since it took a while. People started using their phones, so I decided to send congrats messages and I just kept getting them back! Then eventually even my seat mates were getting messages from different people.

He also said that he was sent a large number of photos but unfortunately only saved the ones he tweeted about. Here are some of the photos:

This guy even got his seatmate in on the gimmick:

This is such a cute grad pic:

Very lozol: 

And of course, the one who started it all:

From a fellow Lasallian alumna, congratulations graduates!
