To whomever it may concern,

We as a class feel that due to new advancements in the pandemic, there should be some changes in our current commencement plan. Vaccines are now available to all staff/faculty, and to the majority of  people who will be attending as guests. Currently, there have been 4.54 million doses given in Georgia, and that number only continues to increase. On top of that, our governor, Brian Kemp, has lifted all covid restrictions. Fall semester is going back to face-to-face instruction, along with football games continuing just 3 months after our graduation. We feel that if that is possible, then our commencement ceremony shouldn’t be so limited. We are asking for the following:

- that we are given an extra ticket. This will prevent students from having to choose between family members to attend.

- that we be allowed to sit on the field. The seats can be spread out in a socially distanced manner, and any student who may want to sit in the bleachers with their family, may.  Of course, masks would still be required.

We have worked hard over the past 4 years, and we have been looking forward to this moment. We understand that these are unprecedented times, but things are looking up and we believe that these small changes are still doable. Please take what we have mentioned into consideration.

Thank you,

The UGA class of spring 2021
