Literally just the best tweets from people finding out Abigail Wexner is the spring commencement speaker
‘Did OSU buy a commencement speaker or did the commencement speaker buy OSU?’
Earlier this week, Ohio State University announced that Abigail Wexner will be delivering the 2017 spring commencement address.

The news received mixed reactions from Ohio State students. Other colleges across the United States have snapped up speakers like the Dalai Lama, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and other notable public figures or celebrities.
In the past, Ohio State has seen speakers such as R.L. Stine, John Glenn, Christopher Reeve, and Barack Obama, leaving students puzzled by the choice of speaker for this year. Abigail Wexner is best known for her philanthropy work and her role as an Ohio State University Trustee. Here are the best Twitter reactions to the announcement.
