I was stunned to read the letter to the editor about Cal Poly’s graduation (“Show some respect, Cal Poly grads,” June 16).
I taught at the University of Maryland in College Park for 26 years and attended each year’s May and December graduations. I never saw anyone leaving graduation ceremonies early. This speaks volumes about the parents, students and faculty. What a sorry spectacle.
Perhaps they should discontinue the bothersome ceremony and just mail them their diplomas.
