What are your thoughts as a graduating senior? Would you like to share them with your classmates, family and friends? If so, you are invited to submit a speech proposal for consideration as the Student Commencement Speaker! All 2015 graduating Amherst seniors are eligible. Your proposed speech must be written by you as an individual, no group or collaborative submissions. It should be of general interest to graduating seniors as well as to parents and other guests. It may address your impressions and experiences, both academic and extra-curricular as well as your thoughts as you look to the future.
Students who are interested in giving the commencement address at the main commencement ceremony on Friday, May 8 in the stadium have until Tuesday, February 3 at 4:30 pm to submit a proposal.
We encourage all of you to submit! We’d love to brag about a Polsci or Legal Studies major receiving the honor!
