Florida University Holds Separate Graduation For Pets
A Florida university held a separate graduation ceremony for the pets of graduating students.
Eckerd College, a private school in St. Petersburg, Fla., graduated over 50 pets during its sixth “Pet Commencement” ceremony, reported The College Fix.
“This year’s most exotic pet to participate was Sunny the Hedgehog,” Eckerd spokeswoman Robbyn Hopewell told The Fix. “In past years, we have had bearded dragons, spiders and even ducks participate in the event.”
Hopewell said that the school has graduated more than 200 pets since 2013 and that Eckerd has allowed animals that meet certain standards to live on campus starting in the 1970s.

Seems like something fun for the students that is optional and memorable. I don’t see anything wrong with this.
