WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama will deliver the commencement address at three colleges in May, including the U.S. Naval Academy.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Friday that Obama will speak at Arizona State University on May 13, Notre Dame on May 17 and the U.S. Naval Academy on May 22. Presidents typically deliver a speech to graduating students at one of the three service academies.

As a candidate, Obama spoke to the graduates of Wesleyan University in Connecticut last May, filling in for Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass.
