You can say that you graduated from college, or that you were graduated from college, or that the college graduated you. The word comes from the Latin gradus, meaning a stop or a degree. If you made the grade, your college marked your progress by awarding you a degree.
But unless you’re in the business of marking your college’s progress, you should not say that you graduated college. If you insist, maybe you should go back to your books.
