Apply to Speak at Graduation Events


We are postponing auditions until the University sets the date of commencement. We will keep your speech on file, and if we need any additional materials we will contact you.

Graduating seniors may apply to speak at one of two events: Commencement and Senior Chapel.

  1. Fill out form online.
  2. Email speech to danielle.minke@pepperdine.edu

Please note: if selected to speak, you will be expected to work with an English or Speech professor to finalize the text of your speech.


  • You must be a graduating senior to audition.
  • Limit your speech to 3-5 minutes.
