Deadline Extended to Apply to Be the Student Speaker at the Political Science Convocation!

Sunday, May 14, 2017 - 11:55pm

The Political Science Department's Convocation to celebrate graduating students is on Thursday, June 8th, from 10-11:30am. One of the highlights of this event is the undergraduate student speech. Giving this speech is a special opportunity to reflect with your fellow graduates on your experiences at UW and to share thoughts about your education. Political Science invites submissions from students who have graduated or will graduate from Summer 2016 through Summer 2017.

Click here for more details and to submit your speech. Speeches are to be no more than 500 words (about 5 minutes to deliver) and must be written to appeal to a diverse audience of fellow students, family, and friends. There is no set theme, but the best speeches express your experiences and insights; the worst speeches string together cliches about graduation.

The Political Science Department will choose the speaker and then will help the speaker to polish their speech and practice delivery.

If you have questions about the convocation or the undergraduate speech, please contact Political Science Advising at or 543-1824, or stop in to see us in SMI 215.
