Students graduating Saturday from a small Michigan college will hear from the Vice President of the United States.

Vice President Mike Pence will deliver the commencement address at Hillsdale College’s graduation.

Hillsdale College is influential in conservative political circles.  So it should come as no surprise that the small liberal arts school should be able to nab the vice president as its commencement speaker.

Pence is no stranger to the Hillsdale campus. 

The former Indiana governor and congressman appeared at events on campus twice before, back in 2010 and 2011.

On those occasions, he spoke on the presidency, economic liberty and the Constitution.

This will be Mike Pence’s fourth trip to the state of Michigan as Vice President.
