Other Great Convocation/Commencement Speeches

Inspired by the recent Rotman graduation for the class of 2011 and inspiring valedictorian speeches, I wanted to share some of my other faves:

  • Conan O’Brien’s recent Commencement address at Dartmouth
    • Steve Jobs’ 2005 Commencement address at Stanford
    • JK Rowling’s 2008 Commencement address at Harvard

      offer students three gifts for their journey (judgment, compassion, and mercy).
