What do Maya Rudolph, George W. Bush and Tim Cook have in common? They each recently delivered very different and very well received commencement speeches at some of our country's most prestigious colleges.
It's graduation season, and colleges across the country have done their best to reward graduates with A-list commencement speakers. If you attend one of the larger or higher profile schools in the US, chances are you're going to enjoy something awesome from a former president, Apple CEO or SNL legend. Graduates of George Washington University, Tulane, Southern Methodist University and UVA sure did, as rounded up by Time.
And while there may have been more entertaining speeches floating around last weekend, Apple CEO Tim Cook left his listenders with a practical and sincere message that we all can take to heart.
