With graduation season in full swing, NPR recently unveiled a collection of the 316 commencement addresses that its writers consider the best ever.
Eleven of "The Best Commencement Speeches, Ever" were delivered at Niagara University.
The only other school from Western New York to appear on the list was the University at Buffalo, which had one speech included.
To construct the list, NPR staffers sifted through addresses dating back to 1774 and built an online database of what they construed to be the very best.
