Barack and Michelle Obama attended their daughter Sasha’s graduation from the University of Southern California on Friday. The former president, first lady and their eldest daughter Malia were all smiles as they proudly watched Sasha get her diploma at the Allyson Felix Field for USC’s Dornsife College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences.

Sasha attended the University of Michigan in 2019, where she studied psychology, before later transferring to USC in 2022, where she reportedly earned a degree in sociology.

While the family was surrounded by secret service agents, the Obamas were still able to blend into and interact with the crowd of cheering parents and graduating students effortlessly. The former president opted for a grey suit and black sunglasses, while the former first lady wore a black dress with dark blue tulle. Malia, who was later pictured wearing her father’s blazer, looked stunning in a tan dress and heels.
