Class of 2020! Students who were unable to attend their university graduates due to Covid-19 do not wear caps and dresses in their backyard while celebrating at home
- Students wear finery to celebrate that it would be a graduation day
- Universities around the world have postponed graduation during the pandemic
- Some have taken part in virtual Zoom graduations or held parties in gardens
While universities cancel or postpone their graduation ceremonies during the Covid-19 pandemic, students have taken the festivities into their own hands.
Although graduates would usually have gathered to receive their degrees and diplomas for close friends and family, due to the current crisis, the parties have taken place behind closed doors.
While some graduates celebrate with virtual drinks with classmates and teachers, others have had their own parties – donning their hats and coats in their backyards and living rooms.
While sharing their social media festivities, many graduates’ friends and families decorated gardens and homes with balloons and streamers to help their loved ones mark what their graduation day would have been.
