Commencement Speaker Submissions

Speak at Commencement

Graduation is nearing. As a senior, it's natural to begin reflecting on your college experience. Consider how your CLU experience has influenced your life's journey … the fun times as well as the challenging times, and of course the people who were there for you along the way!  We know you have important things to say, and we hope you'll consider the opportunity to share those thoughts with your peers at graduation. Did you know that any CLU student who meets the requirements to walk/participate in graduation (to be held Sat., May 17, at 10 am) is qualified to submit an application to be considered for the 2014 commencement speaker? It could be you! 


We encourage you to submit a 3 minute speech that connects to the larger campus community and responds to the following prompt using the form below. (Helpful hint: timing is everything. A 3-minute speech is approximately 1.5 pages, double-spaced.) 


If public speaking isn't your thing, make sure you encourage a friend who you think would do an awesome job! 


Submissions will be accepted through end of the day on March 10.
