Graduation ceremonies around the country continue to be canceled again this year. Though the official celebrations are off, you can still create your own celebration at home to mark the occasion. Check out these helpful tips from Ashworth College to get the party started.
While a graduation ceremony is the favored way to mark the completion of your academic accomplishments, it’s not the only way. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, people have had to create unique ways to celebrate all sorts of occasions at home in less-than-traditional ways. Graduation celebrations have been no different, and there are many fun, unique ways to make sure the occasion gets recognized.
Making a big fuss isn’t for everyone, though, so if you don’t feel like decorating, hosting guests, or organizing groups, it’s ok, but you should still take the time to do something special for yourself. Graduating is a big deal and you deserve a reward for your hard work and perseverance. Treat yourself to something you’ve been thinking about buying, treat yourself to some “me” time and book a trip to the salon, a fitness class, or anything else you’ve wanted to do but didn’t have the time for when studying.
The idea of celebrating your graduation without a formal ceremony might not have crossed your mind or might not have seemed important if it did, but marking your accomplishments is important. Doing so can instill a sense of pride which can improve your mental health. These positive feelings will remain, helping you in the future by offering encouragement when you take on your next challenge or goal.
It’s also important to remember that the celebration isn’t just about you, either. Friends and family alike want to let you know they’re proud of you for overcoming obstacles and persisted through your studies. They’ve also served as a support system, encouraging you and lending help throughout your journey, making this a moment for them, too. Be sure to embrace the moment and show them your appreciation for their support.
Get started planning your celebration, but be sure to remember to sign the virtual yearbook so you can remember your Ashworth College experience.
