Lasallian Student Commencement Speaker
Each semester, Lewis University offers an undergraduate student the opportunity
to deliver the Lasallian Student Commencement Address. This address, unlike
a traditional valedictorian address, is a very different kind of speaking
opportunity. The student chosen for this honor is asked to speak about how
the Catholic and Lasallian Mission of Lewis University has had an impact
on the speakers’ college experience.
This is the only such experience at Lewis University that provides a graduate
with the opportunity to address his or her student colleagues, faculty,
guests and family during Commencement Weekend. It is truly
a great honor and a unique, rewarding experience.
Faculty and staff members traditionally nominate students for this honor.
The nomination process for the December Commencement Weekend begins
in October and the process for the May Commencement Weekend begins
in March. Students who meet the selection criteria are also invited
to nominate themselves
for this honor.
