Student Remarks

Class of 2024 Student Speakers

One of the highest distinctions a student can receive is to be selected as a student speaker for your Commencement ceremony. It is a chance to represent Binghamton University and your school by giving an address that inspires, encourages and reflects the vision and hopes of the Class of 2024. The address not only commemorates the event but also gives a student the opportunity to pay tribute to those who have helped him/her along the way as well as tout the accomplishments of fellow graduates.

To be considered as a student speaker:

Students can contact their respective school with any questions. 

Your school's application process will be posted here when available.
