A Very Conan Commencement

Filed under: Conan O'Brien

Oh man! What we wouldn't give to be present for THIS!

Dartmouth College announced this morning that Conan O'Brien will be giving the commencement address to the school's graduating class of 2011!

Check out the announcement from Eric Tanner, Dartmouth's Student Body President (above)!

Apparently, the funnyman normally turns down these types of invitations, but because the college's President, Jim Kim, was a former student of O'Brien's father, Harvard University professor Thomas O'Brien, he agreed.

He says in a statement:

"I was honored to to be asked to give the commencement address to Dartmouth's graduating class of 2011, until I found out their first choice was Pauly D."

AMAZING!

Lucky ducks! We hope you guys realize what a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity this one is!

Happy graduation, guys!
