Slogans for graduating classes include "Born To Be The Best," "Freshmen Fear Us. Sophomores Bow Down To Us. Juniors Want To Be Us" and "If At First You Don't Succeed, You're Not Us." These slogans focus on the superiority of the graduating class, while others express a sense of relief at having made it to graduation. Examples of the latter include "It's Been A Wild Ride," "It's Opener, Out There In The Wide Open Air" and "We Did It!"
Slogans such as these are commonly used to celebrate the graduating class's accomplishment and may be featured on t-shirts or banners.
Some slogans are less serious than others. Some examples of funny slogans include the following:
- Thanks Wikipedia!
- We're Graduating (no, really)!
- We're Kind Of A Big Deal.
- The World's Not Ending, We Are Just Taking Over.
- Kiss My Class Goodbye.
- We're Super Fresh, Like Mr. Clean. We're The Class of 2015/2016/2017/2018/2019!
Aside from expressions of superiority or pride, relief and humor, it is common for graduation slogans to look to the future with optimism. Examples include "There's A Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow," "We Stand At The Threshold Of A New Beginning," "The Open Door To A New Beginning" and "We Are Ready!"
