TV graduation for some

Amstrid Gomez, News Editor

The Pitt-Johnstown commencement ceremony is to take place 1 p.m. April 27 at the Pitt-Johnstown Sports Center and by Friday, there still was no information on who the commencement speaker will be.

According to the Pitt-Johnstown website, graduates are to arrive between 11:30 a.m. and noon. Guests are to arrive by 12:30 p.m.

All graduates are to receive four guest tickets for friends and family.  Tickets may be picked up at the Living Learning Center front desk 9 a.m.-7 p.m, Monday through Thursday until Aprl 18. Some students, however, are looking for more tickets.

Senior Kyle Mansueto said that he has a really supportive family who would like to attend his graduation.

“It’s heartbreaking picking who can come or not. It’s pretty frustrating right now.”

Mansueto said he thinks the limit should be six tickets, not four, to accommodate students who may have bigger families.

Senior Alexandra Chop hung up fliers in the academic halls, which explained why she needs extra graduation tickets.

“I have a really large family that all want to attend my graduation. I’m the first person in my family to graduate from college.”

The flier also said that she was willing to pay money for the extra tickets.

Guests who don’t have tickets are to be seated in the Wellness Center Gym, where they can watch the commencement ceremony via video.
