On Tuesday, students at the University of Free State (UFS) celebrated obtaining their degree during a virtual ceremony.
It led to #UFSVirtualGraduation trending on Twitter as the graduates shared their success stories and photos of the special day.
Briefly.co.za decided to take a look at some of the posts to celebrate the students' achievements.
Twitter user Bandile Simelane shared a throwback image of himself as well as one in graduation attire to celebrate bagging a BSc Agric degree.
Take a look at the post below:
Another tweep, Charles Omaar, obtained his Bachelor's degree:
Octavia Makhetha graduated with an LLB degree. UFS gushed about her success online, writing:
"I enjoyed Family Law, Law of Delict, Admin Law, and Jurisprudence at campus. I was an on-campus student, staying at Thuthuka and Marula. #UFSGraduation2020 | #UFSVirtualGraduation."
A beautiful lady, @KometsiS, revealed she completed a Bachelor of Commerce in Accounting:
Another tweep, @Onke_Oinks, might not have walked across the stage but she did celebrate her achievement by wearing the graduation cap in her house.
In other news, Briefly.co.za reported earlier on two bright students. The students developed a mobile app that allows other people to request that volunteers stand in queues for them at a price.
This allows young people to generate an income while helping the sick and elderly to stay off their feet until its their turn to be helped - and that's only one of the cool features of Lebogang and Vuyo's app.
Speaking to Briefly.co.za in a Q&A, the duo opened up about their success, life and who inspires them to push for greatness.
Meanwhile, a man, Ilan van Staden, shared then-and-now photos of himself with his brother, Moses Mthembo.
Ilan revealed that although he and Moses do not share the same parents, they grew up together in the same house. The post inspired over 26 000 South Africans, who shared their views on the brotherly bond between the young men.
