What's a graduation without putting on a funny hat and gown, listening to speeches, and walking across a stage to get your diploma in front of your classmates, teachers and family? 

As a result of the global coronavirus pandemic, traditional high school and college graduation ceremonies have for the most part gone virtual or have been postponed. Some virtual ceremonies have been extremely elaborate (think holograms), while other schools have staged drive-in ceremonies, or even one-on-one graduations

Some students have gotten creative with DIY graduation celebrations, while others have petitioned for in-person ceremonies to be held with facial coverings and social distancing.
