Columbia Students Concerned as USC Cancels Commencement Graduation

The University of Southern California and Columbia University have been grappling with safety concerns amid growing anti-war protests, leading to the cancellation of commencement ceremonies. Schools across the country where protests have erupted are uncertain about adjusting or canceling their ceremonies. Students at various schools have set up tent encampments in opposition to the Israel-Hamas war, complicating plans for graduation events. The cancellations add another obstacle to graduating students who have already faced disruptions due to the pandemic. Some students, like those at Columbia, fear disruptions during their graduation ceremonies, but are working towards finding ways to celebrate meaningfully despite challenging circumstances.
