Georgia State University Graduation Ceremony for the Class of 2012
Petition Background (Preamble):
The year before their centennial anniversary, Georgia State University made a horrible decision to hold only one graduation ceremony per year.
It is a wonder how Georgia State University came up with this horrendous idea. To shove the class of 2012 into the graduation ceremony of 2013. This is an insult to the class of 2012 and an imposition to the class of 2013.
Not once, did Georgia State University ask its students to pay their tuition the year after classes. So why must their students wait for their deserved rights to a ceremony after the new year?
The graduation ceremony has become a charade in the eyes of Georgia State University Office of the Registrar. What they fail to understand is that the ceremony is more than caps, gowns and rolled up pieces of paper, it is a right of passage in the western world. To eliminate the dignity of this ceremony is to destroy our culture and rights as students.
We the undersigned, call on the Georgia State University, and the Georgia State University Office of the Registrar to fairly grant a deserving farewell ceremony to the class of 2012, who will be completing their respectable degrees in the Fall semester of 2012.
