If you’re curious to hear a couple of the commencement addresses to Ivy League graduates, we have the Penn and Columbia ones here for you. Most of the Ivy League commencement ceremonies will be taking place within the next week but Penn’s and Columbia’s have already taken place. Take a look at the Columbia University commencement and listen to the inspiring address of Columbia president Lee Bollinger in which he talks about the freedom to pursue knowledge. And enjoy Denzel Washington’s address at the University of Pennsylvania commencement in which he urged students to be “open to life” by accepting that life is filled with failures and obstacles to overcome. Washington’s son is a member of the junior class at Penn.
