Twitter Poll: What are your thoughts on the graduation dates for 2020 graduates?

(Infographic by Kaylie McLaughlin | Collegian Media Group)

For 48 hours, the twitter poll asked students what they think of the new plan for 2020 graduates’ commencement. The new plan puts commencement on a Monday and Tuesday in November.

Of the 158 respondents, 36.1 percent said “it’s less than ideal” and 34.2 percent said they didn’t have an opinion on the matter.

Additionally, 17 percent indicated that they are “upset” about the plan. The remaining 12.7 percent said they are “fine with it.”
