It’s graduation and commencement season again — the time of year when speakers, both well-known and less so, deliver speeches to students as they prepare to move on in their lives and pursuits. Sometimes the advice offered is great, while other times… not so much. BTR Pulse‘s Sarah Fraser speaks with people about what makes an effective graduation speech and then hands them the mic to deliver their own words of wisdom to the class of 2014.
Featured song: “Graduation Day” by Math and Physics Club
