CAMBRIDGE, MASS. (AP) - Harvard has announced that comedian and actress Amy Poehler has been selected as this year’s “Senior Class Day” speaker.

The school announced Tuesday that the Massachusetts native will address graduates and their families in Harvard Yard’s Tercentenary Theatre on May 25.

The annual ceremony is scheduled the day before commencement and is a chance for Harvard’s senior class to socialize one last time before graduating.

Poehler, a Boston College graduate, is known for her work on the late-night sketch comedy show “Saturday Night Live” and currently stars in the NBC comedy series “Parks and Recreation.”
