Widener University having alternative plans for commencement in the event of bad weather.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

Commencement ceremonies are very special and important for graduates and the families of graduates. It is unfair that students who have invested money into their  degrees and the university to miss out on this affair. Widener University has made it known that graduation will be rain or shine. Graduates and Family members should not have to sit through a ceremony in the rain. In the event that the weather is dangerous or heavy downpour graduation will be cancelled. So many people have invested time and money for this day to be an memorable occasion. It seems fitting that Widener considers alternative options for commencement ceremonies, especially when they where allotted ample amount of time to plan successfully. 

Expecting to graduate with a Masters of Social Work degree, I would love if you would support me to impact this change. If it cannot change for myself, then maybe for future graduates. 

Thank you for your support and taking the time to read this petition.
