Nate Berkus '90: Commencement '13 Speaker

We are thrilled to announce that Nate Berkus '90 will be this year's commencement speaker! Nate, a designer and author, was a regular guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show and hosted his own daytime television show, The Nate Berkus Show. A New York Times best-selling author, Nate's latest book, The Things that Matter, pays tribute to his Cushing days and his beloved French teacher, Cheryl Storm. In addition to honoring Nate as our keynote speaker, Cushing will also present him with a Distinguished Alumnus Award during commencement. We look forward to welcoming Nate back to campus in May!
