Middle Georgia State University hosts in-person graduation ceremonies
MACON, Georgia(41NBC/WMGT) — Middle Georgia State University is once again hosting in-person graduation ceremonies.
Those in attendance are required to wear a mask, and seating is limited.
Although ceremonies are not the same as they were before the pandemic, Ember Bentley, the school’s Chief of Staff, says they have made the ceremonies unique by allowing students to sit near their loved ones.
“You’re not just sitting with your class, Bentley explained. “You’re sitting with your class and the people that got you through this pandemic.”
Each student graduating chose two people to share their moment with as they crossed the stage to receive their diploma.
Graduation ceremonies are expected to continue throughout the week. MGA’s class of 700 graduates is its largest yet.
