Speakers who inspire
Hearing “Pomp and Circumstance” as you process to your seat is usually the first sign that you’re not dreaming...your graduation day has really arrived. Then our Commencement speakers help you survey your accomplishments and turn your thoughts toward the possibilities that lie ahead. Over the past three or four decades, it’s become customary for ceremonies to feature a special, advice-granting guest. At the undergraduate ceremony, a selected student also takes the podium.
The guest and student Commencement speakers are announced in the spring.
