West Georgia Wolves started this petition to University of West Georgia

Amidst the global pandemic that is COVID-19, many life altering decisions are being made. One of them is the cancelation of UWG’s Spring Commencement. 
It is completely reasonable to halt any plans to hold a ceremony this spring. However, it is heartbreaking to crush the dream many of us seniors have had - to walk the stage and receive our degrees. 

Many of us are first-generation students, meaning we are the first in our family to ever get a college degree. Some of us have been in college over four years. Some of our parents have had to make major sacrifices to allow us the opportunity to attend college. All of us have worked tremendously hard. This ceremony is a life milestone.

We understand that it is hard to make decisions at a time like this, but we ask Interim President Stuart Rayfield to please consider postponing the ceremony to a later date. 

We have put it long, hard years at UWG. We deserve a celebration of our work and achievement. We, the Spring Class of 2020 will always be proud to have #WentWest. Please #PostponeNotCancel.
