Keep Graduation in the Central Hall

Bradley Muggeridge started this petition to University of York and

Universities should not have the decision to give precedence to one religious building with a specific history and system of beliefs; keep our graduation Secular. Whilst the Minster is indeed a beautiful building, holding graduations inside of it is completely inappropriate for anybody who does not identify as a Church of England Christian. 

Furthermore, we should also choose to graduate closer to where we have spent years of our lives studying and have pride in our Central Hall rather than a building that is not associated with the university.

Let's show the University that we care more about our own campus, the secular value of university education and equal comfort for other Religious and Non-Religious students at their graduations than we do about the aesthetic pleasure of the building in which it takes place.
