Dillard University held its 80th commencement and awarded more than 200 graduates with their degrees on Saturday on campus. Actor and TV personality Terrence J also gave an inspiring address to graduates and their families on a beautiful day at the black college.

“I was nervous about my speech until I realized most of you grads are drunk,” said Terrence J. The Dillard University official Twitter account tweeted the place to be on Saturday was definitely under the oak on campus. The Twitter account also reminded graduates they are a family, and though “families go their separate ways” Dillard will always and forever be a home away from home.

“Give of yourselves to the world, and remember to give back to Dillard in whatever way you can. Inspire the next generation of Bleu Devils.”
