Within the past few days, colleges have been making some tough decisions regarding what to do about the remainder of this spring semester.

Some universities have already announced that, in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, they are canceling all remaining classes and activities.

Unfortunately, these cancelations also include spring 2020 graduation ceremonies, and seniors everywhere are understandably devastated.

Well, some flight attendants heard the sad news from some students on their flight and decided to do something about it.

The video below shows an impromptu graduation ceremony being held in the aisles of a WestJet plane.

It’s definitely not the graduation the seniors had anticipated, but it’s one for the books – I mean, who else can say that they graduated on a plane?!
