Guess Who’s Coming to Graduation

The top commencement speakers for 2013.

Is President Obama giving the commencement address at your college this year? If you’re a senior at Ohio State University, Morehouse College, or the United States Naval Academy, he is. A list published by HerCampus, though, only finds POTUS as the third most anticipated speaker of the year. The first? Oprah at Harvard. You can’t beat the prospect of her showering the graduates with cars. The second on the list is a dark horse—and, really, HerCampus? Over Obama?—Ed Helms, speaking at Knox College. Hope you know hangovers, Knox graduates. And, really, what college student doesn't?
