Highlights from this year's Commencement

Wolf Blitzer

Keynote Speaker

Wolf Blitzer, anchor of The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer on CNN, delivered the University of New Hampshire commencement address for both the class of 2020 and 2021. Blitzer recorded his speech in order to provide it to all graduates in multiple ceremonies across several days to accommodate pandemic health and safety guidelines.
