We, the class of 2014 at Bellarmine University, want to graduate with our cohort in its entirety, and want you, the university, to change our ceremonies to allow us to do so.

It has recently come to the student body's attention that Bellarmine University has changed its graduation ceremonies. The senior student body will be at Knights Hall together during the convocation ceremonies, but it will then be seperated by schools in different areas around campus to pass out diplomas. Some of these locations will be the SuRF tennis courts and the University Dining Hall.
After spending four years at this university, making lifelong friends and memories, and working to complete an academic degree, the class of 2014 wants to graduate in its entirety and walk to recieve our diplomas with all of our class present before us. We do not feel, after investing our time, talent, and money into this institution, that we should be belitted by being seperated from our friends and receiving a diploma in a cafeteria or on a tennis court. We ask that Bellarmine University restrain from devaluing our time at this instution by giving us so poor a farewell, and instead reconsider this decision and give the class of 2014 a proper exiting ceremony.
