LMU Graduating Seniors OUTRAGED for Falsely Promised Additional Graduation Tickets!
This petition made change with 1,047 supporters!
LMU's undergraduate students are outraged about the University's Commencements Committees false promise of providing graduating seniors additional tickets...AND SO SHOULD YOU!
On April 14th, LMU's Commencement Committee announced that former President, Bill Clinton, would be the commencement speaker for the 2016 graduating class.
The following week, on April 15, the committee issued a statement that the event would be limited to 10 tickets per family, in anticipation of Bill Clinton's attendance. Furthermore, the University's Registrar assured students that they can request additional tickets from April 15th--with no specific limit to the number requested. On April 25th, the Committee even issued an additional reminder that “requests for additional tickets for the 2016 Undergraduate Commencement ceremony must be submitted by 7 pm, Monday, April 25, 2016”.
HOWEVER, today, April 28, at 7:21 pm, the Committee submitted a new update denying all request for additional commencement tickets—ONE WEEK BEFORE GRADUATION!
Many LMU students are OUTRAGED and took to social media to voice their unified concern. One student pointed out, "as much of an honor as it is to have Clinton speak... The whole ticket situation.... I feel like most people would have picked to have as many family members as they want to attend rather than having to pick and now tell people they may not have a ticket to attend...."
Another noted, "To have Loyola Marymount University ask us to request additional tickets, and have staff members consistently assure us about this, ONLY TO COMPLETELY GO BACK ON THEIR WORD. Is ridiculous and unacceptable […] There are actual people that have taken time out of their busy schedules and [purchased plane tickets in advance] to attend what was supposed to be a celebration.... And now they pull this..."
LET US UNIFY AND VOICE OUR CONCERNS AS ONE COLLECTIVE BODY!
As explained in our class motto, let’s “go forth and set the world on fire”!
