Where Do You Want To Graduate?

This petition had 160 supporters

We, The Spring 2017 Graduates, are asking that the office of the president and the graduation committee of Benedict College reconsider their decision of placing the Spring 2017 Commencement Ceremony in the HRC Arena and placing a limit on the guest list of the students who are graduating. Though the weather has affected the original location of the graduation, Families have already started to come and get settled into their respective hotels. Many of the families have come from out of state, have taken a leave of absence and some have spent money they saved all year for this one moment. Telling students and their families that they are not able to invite there families and friends to a moment that is suppose to be celebrated by all, can ruin one of the most important day of many people lives (first generation graduates, etc.)


We have gotten the signatures of the Graduating class of Spring 2017 because we believe in order for us to successfully be commenced into the new chapter of our lives and to celebrate the journey that is being completed that we spend it with our entire family, and not be forced to select a few. We entered Benedict with Pride and we want to exit with Power and there is power in support. Please allow us to spend this joyous moment with our entire families so that we can carry positive energy into the world and be powers for good in the 21st century!
