Attention spring graduates–did you long to stand before your fellow seniors in high school to speak at graduation, but did not quite attain valedictorian or student body president status? If you yearn to present thoughts about your educational experience at George Mason before a crowd, now is your chance.

Any interested student who will graduate in May 2000 is invited to submit a 1,000-word speech to the Office of Events Management (MS 3G3) by Friday, March 31, at 5 p.m. to be considered for inclusion in the 33rd annual spring commencement ceremony. While the subject matter for the speeches is specified, the creative possibilities are endless. Students may choose to write about how the use of technology has affected their education, how being part of a diverse student body at George Mason has affected their education, or how an education at George Mason has prepared them to deal with a rapidly changing world.

Remember, every student who hopes to graduate in May 2000 must submit an intent to graduate online through the Registrar’s Office by Tuesday, Feb. 29. For information about graduation schedules and announcements, visit the Events Management website or call the 24-hour commencement hotline at x3GRAD.

For more information about the student commencement speech, contact Events Management at x32853.
