Graduating seniors who have something to say can say it before an audience of thousands of graduates and their families at Undergraduate and Winter Commencement. The tradition of a student speaker is as old as Commencement itself.
To apply you must:
- Be a senior graduating in the current term
- Have a successful academic record
- Be an involved member of the campus community
- Your speech will be about 3-5 minutes long, or about 500-750 words. If chosen, you’ll get help with editing and rehearsing. You’ll be seated onstage during Commencement.
There is only one student speaker at Undergraduate Commencement
