Submission + - Star Wars Takes Over Harvard Commencement (

An anonymous reader writes: Harvard University celebrated its 356th Commencement on Thursday. One tradition at Harvard is to have an undergraduate deliver a Latin Salutatory address, and this year's speaker, Charles Joseph McNamara, delivered an address all about Star Wars in Latin! has a write-up of the event, and apparently the speaker was really hilarious. I just watched the video and he does a Yoda voice and makes light-saber front of over 30,000 people! The speaker apparently doesn't like Star Wars that much, but it's still awesome. You can watch the speech here under "Morning Exercises." The Latin Oration begins at about 1:09:30.
