Dartmouth Places Third in Top 10 Video List (The Chronicle of Higher Education)


Late-night comedian Conan O’Brien’s 2011 Dartmouth Commencement address is the third most popular college video posted on YouTube EDU for the 2010-11 academic year, according to a new list compiled by The Chronicle of Higher Education.

Dartmouth’s under-the-wire entry was posted June 12, 2011—Dartmouth has one of the latest graduation ceremonies of the commencement season—and just made the Chronicle’s list of most watched videos from June 2010 through June 2011. However, O’Brien’s speech has since shot to the top of the current most viewed list on the EDU section of the popular video site. In addition, his rehearsal video is currently in fourth place on the most viewed list.
