Amid Washington’s graduation season, we look at the craft of writing and delivering commencement speeches. What advice sticks — and what doesn’t?
Guest Host: Jennifer Golbeck
The Washington region is home to more than a dozen colleges and universities, but local campuses and surrounding blocks lack that ‘college town vibe.’ Blame it on high real estate prices or poor planning, but our institutions of higher learning don’t feel integrated in the larger urban fabric. We explore some of the reasons, and what some are trying to do to address it.
