Be a Commencement Speaker
As a senior, it's natural to begin reflecting on your college experience. Consider how your Cal Lutheran 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 Cal Lutheran student who meets the requirements to walk/participate in graduation is qualified to submit an application to be considered for a commencement speaker? It could be you!
