Watch Mark Zuckerberg give the 2017 commencement speech at Harvard University, the same Ivy League he dropped out of more than a decade ago
Mark Zuckerberg is slated to give the commencement speech at Harvard on Thursday — the same Ivy League he dropped out of more than a decade ago.
The Facebook CEO will speak around 3 p.m. ET. You can watch it on Harvard’s website and on Zuckerberg’s Facebook page.
“At tomorrow’s commencement, I’ll share what I’ve learned about our generation and the world we’re all building together, ” Zuckerberg wrote on his Facebook page ahead of the event. “This is personally important to me and I’ve been writing it for a while. Tune in tomorrow a little after 3pm eastern time to watch.”
Zuckerberg’s address follows that of another famous Harvard dropout: Microsoft’s Bill Gates, who spoke to graduates in 2007.
On Tuesday, Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, livestreamed a video from his old dorm room at Harvard — the same place where he began creating Facebook .
