Student speakers are an important part of the Commencement Ceremony, as they represent their graduating class, the faculty members who have nurtured their academic growth, and the staff who have provided them with support and guidance.
Candidates for a bachelor’s degree who have achieved a cumulative GPA of 3.0 and higher at the time of graduation are eligible to compete in the undergraduate speaker category. All master’s degree candidates are eligible to audition in the graduate speaker category. Eligible candidates will be vetted among faculty and administration before a speaker is chosen.
Submit speech videos no later than Friday, March 12, 2021. Once submitted, speeches will be reviewed and speaker selection will be notified.
