Transcript C•H•A•N•G•I•N•G with the times NAQUANNA DRIVER "There are a lot of December graduates and a lot of them have more things to do after Some University of Houston seniors are facing a decision other than which job offer to accept after graduation. That decision is whether or not to attend graduation at all. UH holds one annual graduation ceremony in May. Seniors who graduate in December have the option of either waiting until spring or not attending the ceremony at all. "I'm not going to attend graduation at all," said Dawn Jones, senior psychology major. "I'm going on with another part of my life. The whole purpose of graduation is to bring closure and it signifies that you've finally completed this aspect of your life." Many students feel that a fall graduation is necessary. They feel they should be recognized at the time of completion. Students' Association President Monica Quintero is working to make it happen. "The reason we (SA) feel a need for it is because there are students who graduate in December," Quintero said. "They go on to jobs out of state or they get married and move. So right now, we are in the process of looking at the budget and seeing what kind of funding is available." Quintero said SA has already began presenting the request to administrators. ° "The bill was presented to the last administration, but there was lack of communication," Quintero said. "So our senators are working on that right now and they want to pass that bill and start finding options for the funding. These students should be recognized for their hard work and effort." Some December graduates are not concerned whether or not there will be a ceremony for them. They don't feel the need to walk because their main focus is moving on and searching for new opportunities. "Just accomplishing a goal, having a degree, is what I'm all about," said Reginald Cooper, senior radio-television major. "As far as the ceremony, well, this is college and you come to get a degree and not walk across a stage. It doesn't affect my perception (of graduation) at all." However, Cooper does feel that the students who want a fall graduation should have one. "There are a lot of December graduates and a lot of them have more things to do after graduation than wait around for a big ceremony," Cooper said. This unidentified graduate student struts back to his chair after receiving his diploma. December graduates will not get to experience this pleasure because the University of Houston does not have a fall graduation. Photo by Pete Medrano
