Peirce Colleges celebrates Commencement at the annual Toss Your Caps event

Each year, Mayor Nutter and the Education Task Force of the City of Philadelphia invite area universities and colleges to come together on the Art Museum steps to celebrate graduation with the annual Toss Your Caps event.

On Friday, May 9, a group of the College’s graduating seniors gathered to attend and as always, it was a blast! We are so grateful for the opportunity to have Peirce students recognized by Mayor Nutter and join their fellow Philadelphia graduates of neighboring schools as they toss their caps in celebration!

The event was made extra special by a performance from Kathy Sledge of “We Are Family." Our cameras were there to capture the song, which you can enjoy below:

There were several other joyful moments throughout the day, including Mayor Nutter’s remarks to the crowd and, of course, the actual tossing of the caps!

Thank you to all of the students who came out to participate in this fun event! We’ll see you at Commencement on June 9!
