Officials at West Chester University said Monday that they would hold a second ceremony Thursday for graduates who could not be cheered at Saturday's outdoor commencement because of a rainstorm.
The makeup ceremony is scheduled for 7 p.m. in the Hollinger Field House.
Strong winds and rain swept through the area Saturday before about 355 of the 475 graduates in the College of Business and Public Affairs could walk across the stage, according to the university.
The storm made conditions dangerous, and a tower holding a speaker onstage fell in the wind and grazed a student on the shoulder, said Pamela Sheridan, a university spokeswoman. The student was treated for a scratch.
