My last semester, and graduation, canceled - March 18th 2020, 04:21 AM

I get that the coronavirus is serious and self isolation is important, but I can't help but be devastated to find out that my school will not be opening back up for on-campus teaching for the rest of the year. I won't be able to return to my dorm until it's time for me to collect my stuff. That means that for my final semester, there's no real saying goodbye to my friends, no club meetings, no seeing my professors besides behind a computer screen, nothing. I need help with a few assignments including my thesis and have a hard time doing that type of meeting over the computer, but I'll have to make do. And I was set to graduate this semester and unless they postpone it, I no longer get to walk across the stage.I'm just super devastated. :/

Hi there Dez,

I am so sorry to hear. It can definitely be frustrating and upsetting when something you really wish to do gets cancelled.

If you wish to talk, I'll be here.

Oh, Dez, I am so sorry. It's completely understandable that you would feel this way. Now that I'm beginning to adjust to my new "normal," I'm also feeling sad about a lot of the cancellations and am missing my time on campus. You've worked so hard in school and it's totally okay to feel like this! I imagine I would feel the exact same way in your position.

I sincerely hope that they postpone your graduation and at least find a way to make that possible for you and your classmates. You all deserve to have your achievements celebrated and recognized.

Please take good care of yourself and let us know how we can best help.

Wishing you all the best,

Hi Dez,

I am so sorry about this. I know how hard you have been working on this. When you are saying goodbye to you're friends and walking on the stage it is something that you are looking forward to doing. I wish you we're able to do all of this. Do you have anyone at you're school who you are able to talk to about this and maybe they can help you out with this. I really hope that you will be okay soon. Try calling some of you're friends and finding something else that you can do to get you're mind off of this for a while so that you are not thinking about this so much. Putting on music or funny TV shows or movies or reading or drawing or writing or painting or something else that you enjoy doing to help you out for a while. I wish you the best with this and sending you lots of hugs to help too.

Really sorry to hear about your last semester and graduation being cancelled. I can relate a little as my work is now being done remotely and we likely won't be able to collect data for our dissertations. I miss going to university and see everyone already and it feels awful when it just suddenly stops and there's no actual 'goodbye'.

I really hope they postpone your graduation and you'll get to walk across that stage at a later date- you definitely deserve to after all the hard work you've put into it!
