DePauw Commencement 2010

Monday, May 24, 2010
Scientist and conservationist Wallace J. Nichols, also a 1989 DePauw University graduate, gives the principal address Sunday during DePauw's 171st commencement ceremony. Nichols gave his "sea turtle speech" in nearly 90-degree weather to 485 graduates. He told the group to be both lovers and fighters in life -- to love their families and blue planet and fight for their passions. Dr. Nichols along with Brian Lamb, chief executive officer of C-SPAN, received honorary doctoral degrees at the ceremony.

Phillip Bane steps off the platform Sunday with his diploma during the ceremony.

  • I hear all the time that the banner has become a Depauw newspaper. What about our High School Graduations? High Schools kids have lived in this community all their lives.

  • Bam, the highschool graduations aren't until this weekend (Memorial Day weekend), and they always post front-page in-color spreads about each school's graduation. And not all kids have lived in this community all their lives, and likewise some of those DePauw graduates are from this area too. Lighten up and spread your negativity elsewhere.
