Graduation 2020: Celebrating Grads in a COVID-19 World

With everyone holding virtual graduation ceremonies this year, it can be difficult to know how to celebrate, but we’ve got the perfect idea, and it all starts with a sign.

The Coronavirus has put so many events on hold this year: weddings, concerts, even the Olympics. But one of the saddest cancellations has got to be the in-person graduation ceremonies of high school and college students everywhere.

All that hard work and effort is certainly not going to waste, considering each graduate will be one step closer to heading to college or a rewarding job. But without that big celebration at the end, they may feel deflated. Even though they won’t be able to shake hands with the dean or be handed their diploma, they can still celebrate in style. And by style, we mean virtually.

Schools all over the world are hosting their graduations on Zoom and Skype this year. Though it may not be perfect, when the time comes for each name to be called, it’ll still feel like each student is up on that podium.

Don’t let it stop you celebrating!

As a teacher of a whole group of soon to be graduates, you’ll know firsthand just how hard they worked to get to where they are now. And to make up for the lost ceremony, the missing cap and gown, and the beaming crowds of friends and family cheering them on, there’s something simple yet supportive schools can do.

Make your graduates and their families feel loved by providing them with some colorful graduation signage. The Corporate Graphic Center (TCGC) has a wide variety of eye-catching signs that will fit every style. Ordering a and distributing graduation signs around town will enrich the bond between your faculty and your student’s families. During such tough times like these, we need to connect more now than ever.

Each sign can be customized with a first and last name or be generalized. Ordering in bulk means that every student can be celebrated, as well as friends and family.

Celebrating in this way has so many different advantages:

  • It’s affordable.
  • Students will feel their school’s love and support whenever they see it.
  • Neighbors and even strangers passing by can be included in the celebration.
  • Send signs to friends and family members of your students, so they can be included in the celebration. They could even take photos of themselves next to the sign and email them as a congrats card.
  • It’s just plain fun!
The future is bright

If there’s one thing that’s for sure during this trying time, it’s that someday soon all graduates will be able to put their new-found skills into practice. This pandemic won’t last forever.

Your class of 2020 should be very proud of all they’ve accomplished during the last few years, and one day they’ll be making a difference in the post-COVID world.
