2011 College Graduation Speakers

We've compiled the most comprehensive list of commencement speakers for 2011 across all universities that we could put together. The top keynote speaker at each university and college is listed here. As you can see, the graduation class of 2011 got a fine mix of commencement speakers from celebrities to politicians to writers and broadcasters. Let me know if I missed any famous 2011 commencement speakers. I was surprised by a lot of the colleges famous speakers, especially the fact that they could get Barack Obama and Bill Clinton to speak. You'll notice that some speakers, like Michelle Obama and Elie Wiesel, are going to make their appearance at multiple colleges. In addition, I alphabetized the list for you in order to make finding your favorite celebrity or politician that much easier. Enjoy!
