The people that are commenting on favor the 3 graduations, did you experience them last year? On one hand, yes it is kind of nice to sit through a smaller graduation ceremony. But during that third graduation ceremony it just felt like nobody cared. The board of trustees didn't show up, you can't see any of the speakers live, and chances are half your friends graduated hours before you and you didn't get to share this experience with them. I was in the second session and already all of the faculty looked exhausted and like they didn't want to be there.
Having the three sessions might be more convenient for some, but I went through 4 years of the most difficult engineering program I could, I'd at least like to see the speakers in person during my graduation ceremony and feel like the faculty actually care about my graduation session.
This is just my input as someone that graduated in the three sessions and found it disheartening, and would have rather had it as one session.
