The first weekend of May generally marks the start of graduation season. With that, we bring you some of our favorite commencement speeches. Do you have any favorite graduation speeches? Here are our top 3 that we like the best from commencement ceremonies.

The first one, Graduating Into A Recession comes from BusinessWeek.com. While the focus of the article is on those graduating from business school, it reiterates some important points that also apply to undergrads.
The 2 points we liked the most were:
1. The importance of networking and building up contacts.
2. Having a backup plan, or two.
The 2nd part of our post comes from Professor Randy Pausch.
If you haven’t heard of his remarkable story yet, please take a read/listen at ABCNews.
Check out his most recent lecture at the University of Virginia. It is long, but more than filled with great tidbits on time management that any senior or person in general should consider.
