What an incredible DISPPOINTMENT! After years of hard work, we were looking forward to a commencement speech from someone similiar to the extradordinary ones of the past, Presidents, First Ladies, Bill Cosby... and now... some no-name actress?! Really?? What a disappointment, I will be sure to bring something else to entertain myself with during her "speech". Bad call GWU, what an insult to the graduating class.
