Every year, I make it a point of listening to Penn’s commencement speech as a good dose of inspiration.
After the jump, listen to Dr. Gutmann’s very creative, Hollywood movie-themed commencement speech she gave at the 2011 ceremonies yesterday …and be sure to listen for some very special sound effects added at key moments during her speech!
I encourage all of you to watch this speech and then continue pursuing your dreams.
In her speech above, Dr. Gutmann gave us life lessons from the following films:
Unstoppable – If you combine courage with creativity, if you remain determined, then success is unstoppable.
Listen to this through. I got a good chuckle from the sound effects added to the speech at minutes 3:33 and 13:13.
Because I know all of you alumni out there are super creative, what films did Dr. Gutmann leave out from her list above that you drew true life lessons from? Comment in the “Add New Comment” text box below : )
"Because of Penntertainment, I got scouted for Nickelodeon. I had such a great time talking with them. I may be a resource for a show on science, travel, geography, gender etc. Thanks for all you do. It really makes a difference." -Lisa Niver C’89
