Graduates, get ready.

President Obama will deliver three commencement addresses next month, the first of his presidency.

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs on Friday announced the graduation addresses will take place May 13 at Arizona State University, May 17 at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana and May 22 at the U.S. Naval Academy.

Mr. Obama plans to spend the coming weekend and next weekend at the presidential retreat at Camp David. His schedule for the coming week does not include any travel, after spending two days in California this week.

Mr. Obama will hold an event on clean energy and his budget at the White House on Monday. On Tuesday, he will host the Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd before holding his second news conference.

He will speak to Senate Democrats on Capitol Hill on Wednesday afternoon and then headline a fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee. There will be events at the White House both Thursday and Friday, Mr. Gibbs said.
