The year 2020 has been by far one of the most theatrical years that any of us have lived to see. Coming into my senior year, my last year in my undergraduate career I knew that things would be completely different from my previous years. Each graduating class before Ogre 17 had the honor to experience their last first "Holland Party", Open Convocation, their last Homecoming as an undergraduate student and, a couple of 12-2's. Unfortunately, the Class of 2021 was stripped of every opportunity to create those last memories that would carry us on into our next journey in life. Recently, it was determined that the Class of 2021 would NOT have in-person graduation but through via Zoom. This decision is unacceptable and here is why. Graduating seniors have worked extremely hard during our matriculation at Hampton University, NOT to mention we spent our last two years under remote learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I also think that it is a bit ridiculous that we are required to pay a $50 graduation fee just to sit in our homes. Again this decision is unacceptable and the Class of 2021 deserves an in-person graduation and that is what we are demanding.
