Facebook is hosting a virtual graduation ceremony via its Facebook Watch App. The virtual event, set to take place May 15 at 2 PM Eastern time, will feature celebrities such as:
- Oprah Winfrey
- Jennifer Garner
- Lil Nas X
- Simone Biles
Miley Cyrus is also scheduled to perform.
Once COVID-19 hit, the Michigan Chronicle reported how many universities were forced to alter their graduation ceremonies and the impact it had on the class of 2020.
Sites such as Her Campus are also holding virtual ceremonies on May 15 featuring stars like Eva Longoria, Jesse McCartney, and Tamron Hall.
Although these ceremonies can never replace the real thing, they do serve as a consolation. Plus, how cool is it students are graduating from the comfort of home?
