College Commencement

The president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Cheryl Boone Isaacs delivered the College Commencement address. You may have seen her announcing the nominees and winners at the 2015 Academy Awards. She urges artists to pursue their dreams and protect artistic freedom.


High School Commencement

High School Visual Art alumnus, acclaimed photographer, documentary filmmaker and director David LaChapelle delivered the High School Commencement address. He talks about the uniqueness of UNCSA and charges artists to give to the world and, no matter what you do in life, the lessons you've learn at UNCSA will be used. Nothing is wasted.
