College Graduation Wishes and Messages to Write in a Card

Graduating from college is one of life’s biggest events. After years of hard work and dedication the reward is both a relief and a time for celebrating. If you know anyone who has or is about to graduate college then you should have a huge amount of admiration for them. A good way to show how proud of their achievements is to congratulate them, possibly with a gift or card. You don’t have to go over the top or spend a huge amount, but celebrating a major life event of theirs is always a nice gesture.

But if you’re going to be giving them a card you might be struggling what what to write or say in it. Finding the words to sum up your feelings and wish the college graduate success or congratulations can be difficult. If it’s a close family member – perhaps your son, daughter, grandchild etc. – then you will probably be feeling massive amounts of pride, and will want your card message to reflect that.
