The School of Arts and Sciences announced yesterday that prize-winning, best-selling author, and Penn English/Writing Professor Paul Hendrickson will deliver the address at the College ceremony on Sunday, May 13. Hendrickson is the author of numerous critically acclaimed works of non-fiction, and before joining the CPCW faculty was a feature writer for the Washington Post.
The trustworthy Penn Course Review reveals that Hendrickson has an average professor rating of 3.9. If that's any indication of how interesting/insightful he will be on stage, we're excited. If not, well...at least we won't have to think too hard during the speech.
Stay tuned for updates as the other undergraduate schools announce their speakers.
