This is Water was the first and only commencement speech given by David Foster Wallace, at Kenyon College in the spring of 2005.  Wallace talks about the real value of a liberal arts education in this quick, thought-provoking read.  Definitely worth the 20 minutes it takes to get through it, but be aware of the irritating format: one sentence per page.  You can also listen to the audio of this speech online.
