magna cum laude

Hi everyone!

I ve been looking through the translations of official biographies of famous people back in 1993, and I came aross a very specific line

... he graduated magna cum laude from NAME University...

my dictionary told me this Latis expression means "with honours", but do people STILL use this Latin phraze to mean "with honours" and in which contexts?

Thank you!
