UM: Commencement

The Wall Street Journal reports on how UM selected the student who’ll deliver a speech during the 2010 commencement, sharing the stage with President Obama. From the report: “Ashley Shaver, the other student judge, liked a submission on the lighter side from Miquelle Milavec, a sociology major from Saginaw, Mich. ‘U of M Class of 2010…Whatup?! [wait for crowd reaction],’ began Ms. Milavec. She praised all those roommates who were waiting for her after tough exams with ‘a few natty lites,’ a reference to the beer Natural Light. Older committee members argued that wasn’t the best way to greet a president.” [Source]
