About this Site

Garry Trudeau once said that "commencement speeches were invented largely in the belief that outgoing college students should never be released into the world until they have been properly sedated." The speeches and quotes on GRADUATION WISDOM are the exception to this rule.

kawaii-1 My name is Cristina Negrut and I created this website in 2006 when my youngest son was only a baby and my oldest was two. Since then, I continue to maintain and develop the site while also curating the archive of the best commencement speeches.

When I started, my hope was that I would learn and share with others life advice from these speeches. Now, ten years into it, I can certainly say that there was a lot to learn. Not only I hope that many others will find the advice here useful but I am also working hard to ensure that many of these wonderful speeches will not be lost. My instinct to preserve these great speeches was most definitely nurtured while I got my degree in Information Science at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.

I was born in Romania and came to the United States over 15 years ago. We now live in Madison, Wisconsin and I work full time, as as a user experience designer. With family and work, I am always scrambling to find the time I want to put into this site but you can be sure that no matter what, I will always find the time to reply if you send me a message with questions, comments, or suggestions at: gradwisdom@gmail.com.

I would love to hear from you!
