Taylor Swift Makes a Quick Trip to Notre Dame to Watch Her Brother Austin Graduate
The singer took a break from her hectic schedule to travel to Indiana
Taylor Swift‘s younger brother Austin Swift is officially an alumnus of the University of Notre Dame.
Austin, 23, graduated on Sunday during the University’s commencement ceremony held at Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Indiana.
The ceremony, which featured a commencement address from Oxford University Chancellor Christopher Patten, was documented by Taylor on her Instagram account.
“AUSTIN JUST GRADUATED FROM NOTRE DAME WHAT A DAY,” the singer wrote.
In the video, Taylor pans the crowd as the speaker on stage congratulates the graduates, before turning the camera on herself, cheering “Yeah Austin!” The “Bad Blood” singer is wearing her signature red lipstick and oversized sunglasses.
Taylor, 25, is close with her younger brother, and regularly supported his work in Notre Dame’s student theatre. In 2014, she opted to skip the MTV Europe Music Awards to watch her brother perform on campus.
The singer made a quick trip to Indiana in the middle of a packed schedule – she performed at Rock in Rio in Las Vegas on Friday night and is slated to appear at the Billboard Music Awards in Vegas on Sunday night.
