Matthew Fox Will Give Columbia University Commencement Speech
Colleges are feverishly trying to enlist celebrities left and right to deliver speeches at their commencement ceremonies. And why not, it brings in lots of good press. Columbia University is no different.
Lost star Matthew Fox is returning to his Alma Mater this year to deliver the commencement speech at Columbia College Class Day. Fox, 40, graduated CC’89 with a B.A. in economics and played wide receiver on the Lions’ varsity football team.
Other notable commencement speeches given by celebrities include Will Ferrell (Harvard class of 2003), Jon Stewart (William & Mary class of 2004), Bono (UPenn class of 2004), and Sacha Baron Cohen, aka Ali G (Harvard class of 2004).
