Give University of Waterloo Graduating Class of 2020 an In Person Convocation

For the graduating class of 2020, a virtual convocation is not a proper way to celebrate all of our hard work and to honour the money we have paid to the University of Waterloo. We deserve to walk across the stage and receive our diplomas with all of our peers. We deserve to celebrate our peers and friends together, as this is an incredibly important milestone. I propose that we hold the convocation ceremony at a later date for the entire class of 2020 where we receive our diplomas onstage with our family and friends, once we have persevered through this pandemic. We trust our president and university will do the right thing, as holding a virtual ceremony falls far short of an appropriate conclusion to a long, arduous journey.
