Graduating seniors from the day and evening divisions are encouraged to apply for selection as the student speaker for the 2024 Undergraduate Commencement Ceremony. A committee of students, faculty, and administrators will choose the speaker. The content and style of presentation of the speech will be the primary criteria used by the selection committee. The delivery time of the speech must be no longer than five (5) to eight (8) minutes. A suggested norm is one typed (double-spaced) page per speaking minute. Applications are due Friday, March 1 at 9 a.m.
Writing a Commencement Speech is a challenging and rewarding task.
If you have additional questions or concerns about appropriate content or the selection process, please do not hesitate to contact the Student Affairs Office at 215-951-1017.
