UCI’s 46th commencement ceremonies will take place this weekend, June 10-12, and will include numerous commencement exercises and events, but in 1968 there was only one on June 15, 1968. The commencement speaker was Dr. Louis Benezet, then President of the Claremont University Center (now the Claremont University Consortium). His speech was titled “Who Shall Lead Us?” There were approximately 400 graduates in the 1968 commencement, there will be many more this weekend. Congratulations to all 2011 graduates!
