A college’s student main goal many times is to finally graduate. With the end of the semester being around the corner, I thought this topic was important to discuss.
Earlier today I saw on the news that a number of African American grads were rushed off the stage when they decided to perform a celebration dance. This ended up being all over the news since what happened was unacceptable. The article on CNN mentions, “As students were called up to receive their diplomas, some decided to perform a quick celebratory dance. But a faculty member didn’t find the performances to his liking, and forcibly rushed the graduates off the stage.” I believe that the man’s actions were extremely rude and unnecessary. Students pay so much money in order to attend college, I do not think a little celebration dance after all students go through, could hurt anyone. It is disturbing to watch this take place because he does it in a way that seems too aggressive.
Thankfully, the man who performed these actions officially apologized to the students; however, it is sad that their college graduation was ruined.
