Pioneer Woman Speaks at OSU Graduation

Pioneer Woman Speaks at OSU Graduation

3,400 undergraduate and graduate students walked across the stage for OSU’s 144th graduation.

Ree Drummond, famed author, TV personality, cooking icon, and renowned businesswoman, was the keynote speaker at all four undergraduate ceremonies.

A key takeaway from her speech was: “Life is about to unfold for all of you in all of its forms: love, heartache, accomplishments, disappointments, new friendships, lost relationships, babies maybe, testing of faith, development of faith, illness, injury, loss of loved ones, triumph, tragedy and tears,” Drummond said. “I could check a lot of those off my list, but enjoy it, life is beautiful. Buckle up and laugh along the way.”

Graduate students and the College of Veterinary Medicine had their ceremonies Friday. OSU-IT had its ceremony on April 22. OSU-Tulsa will hold its commencement ceremony on Monday. OSU-Oklahoma City will hold its graduation on May 13. The OSU Center for Health Sciences will celebrate its graduates on May 14.
