Pomona College Moves Graduation Off Campus

A sit in on College Ave last month.

This morning, Pomona College moved its Sunday commencement to the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Graduation usually takes place on Marston Quad, but protesters calling for divestment from Israel have occupied the stage since Monday.

College President Gabrielle Starr faced criticism last month after 20 student-protesters were arrested. 19 of them were occupying the President's office. The 20th stood in an officer's way as he was leading students to a police van.

This Sunday, Pomona graduates will take buses from campus to the auditorium where the ceremony will begin at 6 p.m.
