COVID-19 Pandemic Forcing Colleges To Cancel Commencements


Bans on large crowds amid the coronavirus pandemic are forcing Ohio universities to put graduation ceremonies on hold.  

The University of Akron, Ohio State, Cleveland State, Youngstown State, Wright State, Clark State and Capital University are among them.  Governor Mike DeWine is also recommending the postponement of weddings and funerals.
