City Speaks: City students, faculty react to commencement postponement
By Elisabeth Vermeulen, Staff Writer The 2020 commencement ceremony for San Diego City College was scheduled at Balboa Park for May 22 — a rite of passage that many students wait a lifetime to experience. But due to statewide restriction of assembling large groups, San Diego Community College District Chancellor Constance Carroll announced in an April 1 email that the ceremony was postponed. City students were later notified that the event would be held virtually on July 17.
