Senior Oration

The Senior Oration is a regular part of Commencement in which a graduating senior delivers a 5-7 minute speech to the Commencement audience. A Senior Orator is chosen for each ceremony by a selection committee, in a multi-stage process beginning in January. Senior Orations are characterized by a cohesive theme and often include anecdotes from the Orators' individual college experiences that resonate with their peers and families in the audience.

The Senior Orators will be chosen by a selection committee, in a multi-stage process.
