Commencement 2018

Speakers and Honorary Degrees

We were excited to welcome two compelling speakers to campus for Commencement this year. John Leguizamo, an award-winning actor, playwright and activist, delivered the Commencement address. Mallory Mortillaro C’13, G’15, who discovered a long-lost Rodin, spoke in honor of alumnae/alumni achievement—part of our 150th anniversary celebration, which kicked off at last year's ceremony with the Rev. Dr. William Barber II T’03, our Sesquicentennial speaker.

We were also joined by Dr. Arnold Demain and Dr. Steven Gilbert, who were named honorary degree recipients by the Board of Trustees.
