Oprah is the 2018 USC Annenberg commencement speaker and Twitter is freaking out
You get a degree! And you get a degree!
Somehow managing to one-up Will Ferrell from last year, the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism announced that the one and only, Oprah Winfrey, will be the commencement speaker for 2018.
We just shared some exciting news w/our #ascj Class of 2018 and are thrilled to announce that global leader, philanthropist, producer & actress @Oprah will be our commencement speaker. #uscgrad. pic.twitter.com/luhPxhsAy0

The news sparked a lot of excitement on twitter and some jealousy (from those who aren't graduating from Annenberg or who graduated in years prior). Here are some of our favorite tweets:
Of COURSE the only person that could top Will Ferrell for USC’s commencement speaker is L I T E R A L @OPRAH
