Rain couldn’t dampen the cheers and the laughter as law graduates celebrated, and Alec Baldwin gave a surprisingly serious speech.

“America runs on capitalism and democracy in an often conflicting arrangement. The success of that arrangement requires the work of dedicated and honorable Americans who will aggressively protect what we have in this country. And when you look at the world today, even considering America’s problems, we still have a great deal to protect. Protecting what we have means giving back while we are striving to get ahead.”

Alec Baldwin
Actor and Activist
Recipient, Honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts
