Allow 2 Guests at QU's 2021 Commencement!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,500!


On February 9, 2021 Quinnipiac's class of 2021 received word that we will be able to have in-person graduation, but families, friends, faculty and additional guests will participate virtually. We are urging Quinnipiac's administration to reconsider this. The Quinnipiac Ice Hockey Arena has capacity of 3,386 people, and we believe we can SAFELY invite our parents (or 2 guests) to celebrate all they may have sacrificed for us to receive college degrees. We believe everyone is also willing to be flexible in this - whether it be through vaccinations (if available), negative tests, antibodies, or graduating in smaller pods. The School of Nursing, for example, has under 200 students, and if each student could bring 2 guests that is 600 people. We believe 600 people can be safely social distanced around the 3,000+ capacity Ice Hockey Arena (and all other school graduations). 

These graduations are 3 months away and we believe there is a different way to go about this. PLEASE, lets open up a dialogue that will ensure our parents or loved ones can safely celebrate us.
