85% in Poll Oppose Graduation Plans
Eighty-five percent of graduating students polled last week at Cal State Northridge oppose plans for this year’s graduation at the Hollywood Bowl, organizers of the student-run survey said Monday.
A majority of the 922 students who responded to the survey also said they want to bring from four to nine guests, instead of the three guests tentatively allowed by the university, said poll organizer Anthony Ashhurst, an Associated Students graduate senator.
The university decided to hold the graduation in the bowl because the campus area usually used for the ceremony has been closed for construction.
About 4,650 degrees will be awarded at the May 26 graduation, university spokeswoman Ann Salisbury said.
