The Morning Exercises on May 27 included three student speeches: Mary Anne Marks ’10 gave the Latin salutatory, reflecting on the warmth of Harvard's intellectual enthusiasm. The senior English address, delivered by Chiamaka Lilian Nwakeze ’10, considered the intersections of chemistry and poetry. Comedian James "Jimmy" Tingle's graduate English address provided a humorous interlude.
