More than 30,000 people are expected to attend Liberty University’s 40th Commencement exercises on Saturday, a historic day for the university as it welcomes its first female keynote speaker, Fox News reporter Shannon Bream (’93). Bream is also the first Liberty graduate to give the Commencement address since the school became an accredited university in 1980. The ceremony begins at 10 a.m. inside Arthur L. Williams Stadium.

Graduates will briefly hear from prominent Christian apologist Ravi Zacharias, who will also deliver the Baccalaureate message Friday at 6 p.m. in the Vines Center.
