How large was your class?Originally Posted by katgib13
Waiting to announce the next name while the applause dies down is a great idea?Originally Posted by livin4reality;2428601;
Having sat through a high school graduation of 532 kids where excessive cheering was allowed, and a college graduation (split up by department) of 2,500 while excessive cheering was not, I can tell you that the latter went much quicker and smoother than the former.
Graduation ceremonies are painful to endure, at best. I cannot imagine how long it would take if each student's family was allowed to act outrageous and disruptive. They weren't requesting that families not clap, simply that they not make an extreme display to the point it was disruptive. These students and families were instructed beforehand and warned of the consequences. Shame on them for not abiding by the request.
