More than 12,500 undergraduate and graduate students crossed the stage at Convocation Hall this month to become the University of Toronto's newest alumni.

And they shared the moment with family, friends, mentors and classmates – not only in person but through Twitter and Instagram.(Follow U of T on Instagram.)

During June friends, families and graduands were able to check out the Social Wall in Convocation Plaza – a stream of content from Twitter and Instagram that pulls from posts tagged #UofTGrad14 or #UofT – projected on one of the screens.
