Graduation cancelled? Allow students access to their CAP and GOWN to make GRAD memories

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


As the coronavirus epidemic grips the country, institutions have been preemptively cancelling events that would bring crowds of more than 250 together. But students have worked their whole academic careers for this moment where they, in front of their loved ones, receive the honor and acknowledgement that they are joining the ranks of others who hold similar diplomas/degrees.

So rather than cancel one of the most ceremonious milestones in one's life, allow each student to still have access to their cap/gown/regalia and diploma holder so they can make memories with their families, even in isolation.

The pomp and circumstance of graduation ceremonies requiring an audience of hundreds is not always necessary. Most graduates, although grateful for the ceremony, want to receive their diploma relatively quickly and then celebrate with friends and family.  Family want to see their loved one receive their diploma and capture it on film.

So if the graduation is cancelled (and not postponed), let each graduate (in a safe manner) still receive their cap, gown and diploma holder to make memories of their huge achievement.
