A Rousing Ithaca College Commencement Address

New York Times international senior video correspondent Adam B. Ellick ably follows Maya Angelou.


New York Times international senior video correspondent Adam B. Ellick took on a different assignment this weekend. The result was a rousing and at times genuinely funny Commencement address delivered to the graduating class of his Alma Mater.
