Famous Actor To Give This Year’s UAlbany Commencement Speech
Have you seen the Netflix show "Lucifer"? What about the movie "Love the One You're With"? If you have, then you probably know the famous actor that's going to be giving UAlbany's 2023 commencement speech this year!
Known for his roles in shows such as "24", "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", and most recently "The Night Agent", D.B. Woodside is coming to town! He graduated from UAlbany back in 1991 with a degree in Theatre, after which he moved onto the Yale School of Drama. As an accomplished and well known alumni of UAlbany, he was asked to come back and speak at this year's undergraduate commencement ceremony (Sara Rizzo, news10.com).
We are thrilled to have D.B. Woodside return to campus as our 2023 Commencement speaker... His vast variety of acting, writing and directing projects, along with his New York City roots and passion for the University, all make him a perfect fit. His remarks will resonate with our graduates and their families. -UAlbany Director of University Events Christy Doyle (Sara Rizzo, news10.com)
According to Sara Rizzo from news10.com, the ceremony is set to take place on UAlbany's campus on May 13th, but the college will be hosting a variety of commencement activities and celebrations starting Thursday, May 11th through Sunday, May 14th. All ceremonies will be recorded and live streamed, so even if you can't make it in person, you can still watch from afar. It'll be just like when you watch D.B. Woodside on television! Only he'll be playing himself...
