The two separate events for graduation that was decided on to prevent having to rush graduates off stage is ridiculous. The problem was NOT that too many graduations were scheduled. The problem was the Marshal. A little 5 second dance, even by each student wasn't going to make the ceremony take too long. That guy was just an ass. Give them back their graduation ceremony that they EARNED!

This is an affront to the loving dignity of the many sons and daughters of our Republic. I expect that many of my professional colleagues in the creative arts and business community will withdraw of their funding unless there is immediate change. Let's do the right thing here and practice our sensitivity and compassion

My son has worked very hard to be at the top of his program and has a right to have those few precious seconds of individual recognition for his work.

They have put in the hard work too, and deserve the recognition for it!

This is absolutely ridiculous. Everyone deserves to walk that stage in the O’Connell center when they are due the graduate. Let them walk. Some dream of this day, let that dream come true! They work too hard to get there for it to be taken away.

Stop letting higher ups make decisions for thousands of others without input from them
