In March of 2020, ASUP conducted a poll following the Administration’s decision to cancel an in-person commencement ceremony and schedule an ‘online’ commencement ceremony. The survey sought to determine whether or not the student body and their families approved of an online commencement, or preferred a postponed commencement. The results are as follows:
Students were also given the opportunity to voice their opinions in a written statement. Their responses can be seen here. All data and responses have been shared with the proper administrators. As of April 6th, there has been no change in the University’s decision to hold an online commencement in lieu of an in-person commencement.
