Hello fellow graduates, and thank you for that kind introduction. For those of you who don't know me, I'm _____, and I majored in ____. I also want to thank all of the friends and family who could be hear to support their respective graduates, as well as the faculty and staff of _____ University for being here with us today.
Thank you for that nice welcome, and it's great to be here surrounded by...well, just surrounded. We have family, friends, relatives, faculty, staff - they're all here, and they're all celebrating the same exact thing today: my graduation. Just kidding.
My name is _____ and as a part of the Class of 20__ - just a small part, mind you - I've been asked to get up here and say a few words about this occasion and what it all means. So in trying to find the right words, I started asking myself about the graduation ceremony. What is it? Why do we have it? What's the psychology around it?
Good afternoon fellow graduates, family, relatives, faculty, professors - thank you all for coming to join the Class of 20__ at our graduation and commencement ceremony. I promise to keep this relatively brief, but just in case I forget, you should all probably take a bathroom break right about now.
First off, I'd like to say thank you for that warm introduction and offer my own warm welcome for the entire class of 20__ and all of the parents and relatives who could make it out here today. Obviously, if you didn't make it here to support your graduate, you don't get any warm welcomes. I'm keeping them.
Thank you for that introduction, and thank you to all of the parents, relatives, and faculty and staff that could make it here today. It's my privilege to speak to you today at the Class of 20__ graduation ceremony.
Hello everyone, and thank you for that introduction. I'm glad to be with all of you, including my parents and friends, my fellow classmates, my professors, the university administrators, as well as the friends and families of all the graduates here today. We're glad you all could make it to share today with us, because this is a milestone in anyone's life.
Thank you very much to all the families, friends, relatives, professors and school administrators in the crowd. I'm glad you all took the time to support your own favorite graduate and that you're giving me this opportunity to speak with you briefly today.
I'd like to start you off with a quick story today, and depending on how you feel, it may be a bit of a downer. Or it might inspire you. Or, you might feel totally indifferent to it. Any one of those reactions make sense, and you'll find out why by the end.
Thank you for that warm introduction. My name is Clair and I'm part of this graduating class of 2010. Thank you all for being here: friends, parents, relatives, professors, and school administrators. And for those of you who couldn't make it to support us here: don't think we won't remember. And we plan on becoming very rich and powerful, so watch out.
Thank you for that generous introduction. I'd like to welcome everybody that's part of the 2010 graduating class, as well as the parents, grandparents, relatives, friends, teachers, and administrators that helped get us here and are in attendance today. My name is Simon and, no, I'm not that streaker who got tackled by security on the Channel 4 news.
Wide spread higher education, particularly equitable and open higher education, is a relatively new idea. Having a standard to which academically inspiring young people is an even newer idea. However, like all good ideas in human society, once the established practice of higher education had reached the minds and ears of most people of a population it spread like wild fire. Universities and colleges began to pop up and expand everywhere that there was enough funding for such an institution to the point where almost every moderately-sized town at least has a community college.
