Congratulating the Class of 2017!

Two weeks ago, on April 29th, around 400 friends of ours walked at this year’s Graduate Commencement Ceremony. We just got our hands on the emotional and inspirational student speech that My Tran addressed on that glorious day.

To commemorate this year’s Graduate Commencement Ceremony and congratulate the graduates, we decided to dedicate this week’s headliner to My’s speech.

Congratulations, class of 2017! You did it! We wish you the best of luck in your future adventures and accomplishments!

News & Updates



If you’ve been following GGU Social for a while, we’re pretty sure that you’re already aware of this–but we really like teasing things. After a couple of meetings with the SGA team, we have decided to put together another exciting event. While we can’t reveal much about what the event is all about, we decided to share the image above to give you a hint of what’s to come.

Can you guess what the event is?


Speaking of SGA, if you’re new on campus and don’t know who our SGA representatives are, let us introduce you to our SGA team! The team is encouraging all students to share their thoughts, feelings and ideas about the student life at Golden Gate University! Feel free to reach out to them at their e-mail addresses shown in the image above.

Before we wrap up this week’s News & Updates section, we would like to share our university’s What Does GGU Mean to You? piece with the new students. Watch the video above and let us know what you think!
