Aron Ralston (E'97) delivered the keynote address at Carnegie Mellon University's 114th commencement on May 15, 2011. Ralston's heroic story of survival is the subject of the film "127 Hours." Pinned by a half-ton boulder in a Utah canyon for nearly a week, Ralston turned to the analytical problem solving skills he acquired at Carnegie Mellon University to survive and eventually free himself.

Please note, due to contractual obligations we cannot post the entire keynote address by Mr. Ralston, this video features highlights from his speech.

Carnegie Mellon University's 114th commencement drew visitors from around the globe, celebrating the successes — and promising futures — of more than 4,000 new graduates.
