Steve Jobs: Stanford University Commencement Speech, 2005

Steve Jobs, in his own words, speaking at the university a few blocks from his home.

Stanford University

Steve Jobs marched with senior faculty in the 2005 Stanford University commencement procession.

Steve Jobs was not a Stanford graduate, but he grew up in nearby Mountain View and settled down in a picturesque brick house in Palo Alto, with fruit trees in the walled garden, ten minutes from Stanford.

Stanford University is in the heart of Silicon Valley, so it seemed natural to honor one of the Valley's most famous CEOs by inviting him to speak to the graduating class in 2005.

In his most famous speech, Steve Jobs related the story of his own education, in and out of college, and gave memorable advice on how to live one's life.

Rest in peace, Steve Jobs.
