West wore a full academic dress while receiving his degree. He took the stage of the Auditorium Theatre to deliver his speech. While speaking in front of the students, West said apologizing is something that can be used lot. He said that it also gives people the chance to share their opinions.

“People say, ‘You should not be sorry for your opinions!’ George Bush has some very cool self-portraits. I never knew he was an artist. I felt my nerves a bit, and I don’t feel that feeling a lot.” West added.

West further said, “The nerves of humility and modesty when being honoured. A humanisation, a reality of being recognized.” He admitted that he was shaking a bit while delivering his speech and that he needed to get rid of the nervous feeling.
