Students at the University of Arizona are taking on the daunting task of keeping track of the missing students they know in the days following their graduation.
For the students of Eckerd College, the day after graduation is an especially tough one as they have to decide how to spend their days.
Eckerde students are in a position to see their parents, who have recently left their hometown for a new life in New York City.
“When I was in college, I spent the first year of my freshman year in a new country and we were trying to get our kids back,” said student Jordan Sondra.
“We had a lot of support from our parents and my brother and sisters who are still here.
It’s hard to come home and go to college when you don’t have anyone there.”
The students plan to keep their families updated on their progress.
The university has also offered free support to students with parents who cannot attend classes, such as tutoring.
For those who are already home, students can use their Facebook page to share their plans and make plans to meet up.
If the day of the graduation is also a busy time, students will be able to use their own personal social media accounts.
“I’m trying to figure out what I want to do,” said Sondras.
“If I have a bunch of friends, I’m going to have to organize a group.”
The university has started posting updates on its Facebook page on a regular basis, including updates about the graduation.
Students can also use their university email address to contact alumni and the police.
Students at Eckerden College in Eckerdale, Arizona, are planning to use social media to keep track of their classmates and families.
For EckerD College student Jordan, her parents are still in Arizona.
Her brother and sister are also students, but their parents are away for the summer.
Eckden student Ryan Ochs is also staying home to help out his parents in New Jersey.
“It’s a tough time for us,” said Och.
“My mom and dad are still at home and my sister is in New Brunswick.”
The Eckerda College student said they plan to use her own social media account to keep tabs on their classmates.
Ryan Och is also planning to stay home to be with his family.
Eekden College student Ryan Sondes is also not staying home.
