Have you ever wondered what virtual graduation is like? I had never heard of online graduation before, but it did sound interesting. Last week, I went to my aunt’s house to celebrate her graduation (virtual graduation)!
The graduation ceremony of the University of Washington was broadcasted live on YouTube. Instead of marching across a stage, students’ names were shown with their picture beside. There were slides showing students who got the honours award. We congratulated my aunt when her name and photo came up on the slide. Images of students who were online through zoom were shown randomly. The program was followed by the flag ceremony and a commencement speech by the President of the university.
Then we cut the cake, and it was a two-layered, fondant one with coffee and vanilla flavoured icing in between the layers. It was really sweet but still tasty. I ate a little too much. We took pictures too, lots of pictures. There was also other food that we ate for dinner.
Even during a pandemic like this, most graduating students got to celebrate their special day uniquely.
