LEWISBURG, Pa. -- A complete video of Bucknell University's 159th Commencement, including an address by Nobel Laureate and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel, is available for viewing online. || Video

Nearly 1,100 viewers tuned in live for Bucknell's first online broadcast of its graduation ceremony. About 900 undergraduates and 40 graduate students received their degrees during this year's ceremony on May 17.

The video includes the graduates receiving their degrees, presentations of honorary degrees and awards, and the commencement address by Wiesel, who called on the new graduates to "never be indifferent."

Wiesel is the author of more than 50 books, including the world-renowned Night, a memoir of his experience in Nazi concentration camps. He won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986 and shortly after that formed the Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity.
