With the threat of coronavirus, Volunteer State Community College has decided to hold a virtual graduation for students that want to participate
Students are able to pick up their caps and gowns the week of May 4th-8th at the Gallatin and Cookeville campuses. If students are unable to retrieve their cap and gowns, they can use a Snapchat filter provided by StageClip.
According to an email sent out to students, the college regalia pick-up plan will allow students to drive up to campus and pick up their caps and gowns from their car. The school has set up a route for students to follow which takes them between the Wood Campus Center and the Steinhauer-Rogan-Black building.
There a tent will be set up where students show their student ID and are given their regalia. On the exit route students will pass a congratulations banner which they are able to take a picture with if they wish. Likewise, the first 100 students will receive graduate yard sign of their own to take home according to the email.
For the virtual commencement, students must submit their recorded videos, photos, or messages to StageClip by May 9th to be included in the ceremony. Instructions for this can be found in students’ emails.
The actual graduation ceremony will take place May 16th and can be viewed at www.volstate.edu/graduation.
Students that have questions about the ceremony, cap and gown pick up, or any of the Snapchat filters should email email@example.com.
