Larry Page Returns As University Commencement Speaker

by , Comments

The Michigan Daily reports that Google co-founder Larry Page will deliver the commencement address to the graduates of the University of Michigan College of Engineering on April 30, 2005.

Page has a B.S. degree in Engineering from the Unversity of Michigan. Here's a profile of Larry from 2001 that was published in a U of M College of Engineering magazine. You'll read about his favorite college memory.

The Michigan Daily article quotes a student (a devoted Google user) who is thrilled with having a "Google Guy" as his commencement speaker.

“I use Google daily for everything,” Engineering senior Andrew Chandler said. “I’m also an outspoken proponent of it, and I get angry when people don’t have it as their homepage...“I’m quite excited that he’s coming,” he said. “I called my dad today and said, ‘This is awesome, Larry Page is coming.’”

Btw, the other Google Guy, Sergey Brin, was the commencement speaker at the Unversity of Maryland (he's a grad and his dad is a faculty member) in December 2003.
