Tulane Senior started this petition to President Fitts and

The Tulane class of 2021 deserves to celebrate their graduation!! We are asking Tulane to move graduation activities to the weekend of May 22nd, when it was originally planned to allow for students and families to celebrate and come together on the planned day. 

Moving class graduation ceremonies to the week of May 10th prohibits parents who had prearranged their travel and hotel accommodations from also coming 2 weeks prior to see their graduates walk in person. 

After having 1.5 years of our college experience stripped from us, we are asking for the chance to celebrate in person with our families present. The Class of 2021 has so much to be proud of, and we deserve a chance to celebrate this, to say goodbye, and to have closure on our weird and sad senior year.

Tulane had the audacity to bring us back in person and go to extreme lengths to have us all on campus and in person every day. We want them to keep this promise and host us for in-person graduation on the planned weekend of May 22nd.
