how freakin hard would it be to have a policy, that your don't actually graduate till you walk across the stage and are handed your sh!t on the way out the door, it would easily put a stop to any of the high jinks....make an example out of the first couple stupid enough to try something...
notice to students, if you act like an ass while walking at graduation you will be fined or made to complete 100 hrs of community service before actually receiving your diploma, this is to keep the flow and not have it turned into a sh!t fest....

I understand the students’ joy at receiving a hard-won diploma, but damn, already—the graduation stage is not a dance floor. Save it for later!

My daughter graduated from UCF this weekend and they were doing the same sh!t there. My son said something about it being in Black Panther, the movie.
The commencement ceremony ran like a fine time piece, so I can see escorting the dance recital folks off of the stage. I was actually embarrassed for the school. I'm quite sure the school thought it was great.
Where are we going and why am I in this hand basket?

When my kids graduated from jenkins High Scchool in Lakeland they warned the students about this before the cermonies and again right as they started. Guess what, same thing. Some people are clueless. Perhaps there should be a repercussion for behavior. I am not one for more government or authority but as a society we have to do something. No accountability is moving into the jobs with these people. Getting harder to hold anyone accpountable. Fire them and they scream racism or discrimination for some dang thing. Sad!

I can go to the zoo to see that without having to pay for a college education. GARY.

Oh, trust me, I've seen worse. I recall being in my sister's graduation (her Bachelor's degree) in (what was) the Brendan Byrne Arena in East Rutherford, NJ. People were throwing around a beach ball as some of the "distinguished guests" (which included Phil Collins... who was receiving an honorary Doctorate) were speaking. Wow... Now, what would happen is, after the big ceremony in the arena, they would break up into individual departments, and then the students in each department (in this case, the Psychology dept), would walk to get their degree in a smaller indoor venue.

But that's nothing compared to the stuff I saw when my niece and nephew graduated High School! The kids were well behaved! It's the *parents* that had to be admonished by the principal... those parents bringing "air horns," etc. to the ceremony. :ham'r
