MILWAUKEE -- If you follow Marquette University on Twitter, you've been a part of a month-long secret project that ended Friday morning.

For the last 35 days, the first word of every one of the university's last 150 tweets contained a hidden message.

If you read each word, you'll start singing the band Green Day's classic hit that's often associated with graduation – “Time Of Your life.”

TODAY’S TMJ4 sat down with Tim Cigelske – the director of social media at Marquette University – and the man behind the tweets on the university’s Twitter account.

“I came up with this idea that i wanted to share a sentimental message for graduation what popped into my mind was using the lyrics to ‘Time Of Your Life’ by Green Day,” said Cigelske.

Marquette University seniors took their last exams Friday – and their graduation is next weekend.
