We don't know what other commencement speakers are doing, but Jon Bon Jovi has taken the early lead for coolest.
During Thursday's graduation ceremony at Rutgers' Camden campus, the celebrated rocker picked up his guitar and serenaded the class of 2015 with song written especially for the occasion and as his gift to the students.
You can catch part of Jon Bon Jovi's performance of 'Reunion' here.
During the convocation, Bon Jovi, who was lauded for his work with the homeless, and Bryan Stevenson, noted legal scholar and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative, which represents death row prisoners in the Deep South, were awarded honorary degrees.
