It's graduation season for Middle Tennessee's colleges and universities, with special traditions at each one. Over the past few years, it's become a custom for Belmont University president Bob Fisher to deliver the commencement address.
He keeps it short and, in a nod to Belmont's music program and his own love of music, Fisher constructs it almost entirely out of song titles and lyrics.
Here's the speech from last year:
Friday is graduation day at TSU and Vanderbilt; Fisk and Lipscomb's commencements took place over the weekend.
Belmont will hold its ceremonies Saturday, along with Trevecca and MTSU.
