Hi everyone! Florida Atlantic University graduating class of 2020 is going through hardships. With the uncertainty of COVID-19, school has been canceled abruptly ending our last semester at the university that has given us so much. Over a month ago seniors were notified about the cancellation of the graduation ceremonies. This was expected, but the class of 2020 deserves a proper send off. The class of 2020 has been working so hard towards graduation during our time at Florida Atlantic University.

Graduating college is an important milestone and accomplishment in many students' lifetimes. For first-generation college students, to the students who worked part-time jobs just to receive an education, having the opportunity to be recognized for this achievement is an event that students and their families look forward to for years. Graduating is not easy and these years at college required sacrifices from both students and their families. While the precaution to move the rest of the semester online to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is understandable, cancelling graduation is extremely devastating. Students invested time and money into Florida Atlantic University to further their education and I hope that the class of 2020 gets the recognition we deserve.

Sign this petition to send FAU the message that we want them to commit to recognizing the graduating class of 2020 with a virtual commencement ceremony until it is safe to have a proper ceremony. We have all worked too hard to miss out on being recognized for the hard work we have put in. Hopefully, administrators can come to a solution where seniors can receive a send-off from President John Kelly and FAU faculty. Let’s offer a reasonable alternative: to have a virtual ceremony honoring the accomplishments of the class of 2020 in May, and then when it is safe to gather again we can have the in-person ceremony that we all deserve. Thank you for your support!
