Spring 2013 Commencement Speaker -Brennan Morris

“One of the truly wonderful things about George Mason University is that such a rapidly growing and diverse school can also have a profound sense of kinship and community. I think the student commencement speaker makes an important contribution to that balance.  The speaker has the high honor and great responsibility of underscoring some of the amazing accomplishments of the graduating class. While everyone at commencement has a different life story, their paths converge in that event upon a special set of mutual memories and shared anticipations defined by a common bond: they are, and always will be, Mason’s Patriots.”-Brennan

“This was my favorite class at Mason. More than just preparing you to give a commencement speech, this class gives you valuable experience creating speeches you will inevitably have to give at some point in your life–from wedding toasts to eulogies– all the while building long-lasting relationships with fellow classmates.”-Zach

Spring 2016 Commencement Speaker –Andrew Leich  (Speech begins at 1:02:50 on the video )
COMM 440 is uniquely indispensable. The class greets you: ready to tease you with raucous toasts and sobering eulogies. The honest critiques keep you motivated and contribute to a classroom environment which writers and orators alike will appreciate. By the end, the class is still as elevated in energy as it is in anticipation for the commencement speaker selection. COMM 440 has undoubtedly shaped my Mason experience like few courses have and remains a trove of knowledge which is both vast and applicable. I’m sure you’ll find – as I have – that the course is an absolute pleasure to attend. –Andrew
