VIDEO: Alexandra Goyette’s 2015 Wheelock College Commencement Speech


At Wheelock College’s Undergraduate Commencement Ceremony on May 15, 2015, Alexandra Goyette ’15 served as Undergraduate Student Speaker. Goyette was part of a committee that helped create Wheelock’s new Environmental Studies major and is the first student to graduate with the degree. She also founded the College’s first eco-club, Wheelock Students for Environmental Action. In her address, she reflected on her four years at Wheelock, saying, “I have had my ideals and beliefs challenged by faculty, other students, and most notably by myself. Professors at Wheelock have helped us confront what we consider to be our identities, our places in society, and our duties as human beings.” Watch her full address above.
