Graduation speeches are often forgettable, but chances are members of the McDaniel College Class of 2014 won't soon forget when their college president rapped before handing out degrees.
That's right: McDaniel President Roger N. Casey chose to deliver his brief remarks to Westminster college's 760 graduates in the form of an a cappella rhyme on Saturday afternoon.
The social media-loving president dropped a few pop culture references and used his apparent favorite word: "McSwagger," a term he invented to express McDaniel pride.
You know I don't need no moves like Jagger.
I got something better and it's called McSwagger.
I'm @DrRog and I know what I mean,
My favorite peeps are the Class of '14!
Casey also recalled changes over the past four years, such as dorm renovations, which he described this way:
Whiteford, Rouzer, DMC -- You wanted better rooms, we improved all three.
This apparently isn't the first time Casey has rapped for an audience. He started Saturday's graduation rap recalling how he welcomed the Class of 2014 four years ago:
Four years ago, we started at the very same time.
And at convocation, I dropped you a little rhyme.
I put on my bling, I turned around my cap.
Surprised you all with a presidential rap.
