Words cannot describe how much i geeked out and fan-girled in the office when I found out that Zadie Smith is this year’s New School Commencement Speaker. She’s pretty much the coolest novelist around and a brilliant speaker, and the fact that she’s delivering the keynote address to this year’s Class of 2014 is a big deal. Neil Blumenthal, CEO and founder of Warby Parker; filmmaker and activist Abigail Disney; bluegrass musician Chris Thile; and Google’s Chief Creative Officer, Robert Wong (Parsons, ’90) will receive honorary degrees.

The New School’s 2014 commencement ceremony will be held on Friday, May 23, at The Theater at Madison Square Garden at 11:00 a.m. Visit the commencement website to learn more about the honorary degree recipients!
