This week, the Center for Disease Control recommended that gatherings of 50 or more people be suspended for the next eight weeks in an effort to stop the spread of the coronavirus among Americans. This news comes as a disappointing shock to college seniors that were anticipating their upcoming graduation dates over the next few weeks. In an effort to preserve student experience amidst this difficult time, many universities have opted for remote virtual graduations that put student safety at the forefront this issue. At other schools, though, commencement ceremonies have been cancelled completely for senior students. As expected, these updates have been met with resistance from students who have been waiting four years to walk in their graduation ceremonies. In a response to these announcements, numerous students across the country have created multiple petitions through Change.org, where they are urging students from their community, as well as other communities, to sign in solidarity.
