K College Cancels in Person Graduation Ceremony
In yet another blow to graduates across the country, Kalamazoo College has just announced they will not be holding in person commencement due to the Coronavirus outbreak. Kalamazoo College President, Jorge G. Gonzalez addressed disappointed graduates saying, “While the tradition of Commencement is sacred and dear, your safety and the safety of your families must come first. Nevertheless, I want to reassure you that we will have a Commencement ceremony for the class of 2020 on campus once it is safe to do so.” In lieu of the traditional graduation trappings, the college will, instead, host a virtual graduation on June 14th.
I don't have to tell you what a milestone graduating is. Many students have dreamed of the magic moment when they walk across the stage and triumphantly raise that piece of paper they worked so hard for and lost so much sleep over. To say this is taking the wind out of graduate's sails is quite the understatement. In the meantime, many celebrities are stepping up to make graduations still as special as ever.
