I worked hard to get my degree and I want to have my in person commencement! I have no interest in a drive through commencement. I did not graduate from McDonalds, I graduated from an institution of higher learning!

Outdoor graduations can be done. We are doing them in SC.

This is not right, to deny these students their rights is incomprehensible!

My friends deserve a real commencement, and I would really like to be able to have mine in December too as I was homeschooled so I never had a high school graduation.

Thanks for adding your voice.

Had I not taken a skip year to join the Marine reserves I would be in this graduating class. A virtual graduation doesn’t do y’all justice.
