May 18, 2010
May 18, 2010, Greencastle, Ind. — No matter where in the world you happen to be on Sunday afternoon, you'll be able to watch DePauw University's 171st commencement. For a third consecutive year, the graduation ceremonies will be webcast live. By clicking this link, you'll be able to access a video and audio feed of the complete program, which begins at 1 p.m. (EST).
"With students hailing from 42 states and 41 countries, it's a given that there are many parents, siblings and other family members and friends of our graduates who would like to be present for Sunday's event but can't make the trip," says Ken Owen '82, executive director of media relations at DePauw. "We're delighted to again provide this option to the University's many constituencies and provide access for people who otherwise could not be witnesses to this special occasion."
The four camera shoot will be supervised by Owen and Wayne Lucas, coordinator of DePauw's Media and User Services Team.
A higher-quality, permanent video of DePauw's 2010 commencement is available via a limited edition commemorative DVD, which is available for pre-order. The disc, which is professionally replicated, will include footage of each graduate receiving their DePauw diploma as well as a range of bonus materials -- including clips of Ubben Lecturers such as Tony Blair, Karl Rove and Howard Dean, and F.W. de Klerk; "Monon Memories" of the last four battles for the Monon Bell; footage of the women's basketball team capturing the national championship; and vintage film from the DePauw Archives. Orders are now being accepted at $19.95 for the first disc; additional DVDs sent to the same address will be $8 each (7% sales tax will be added to Indiana orders). An online order form is available here; you can learn more about the disc in this article.
Scientist and conservationist Wallace J. Nichols will present the principal address at Sunday's ceremony. Dr. Nichols and Brian Lamb, the chief executive officer of C-SPAN, will receive honorary doctoral degrees at the event.
