It's a busy week out at Niagara University as commencement ceremonies will be held throughout the week.

Among those slated to speak are Kenneth Taylor, the former Canadian ambassador to Iran who helped orchestrate the escape of six Americans from captivity during the Iranian hostage crisis in 1979.

And guess who'll be talking to business graduates about the tightrope they'll need to walk to in the current business climate?

It'll be none other than daredevil Nik Wallenda, who will receive an honorary degree.

Also, outgoing university president Joseph Levesque will speak on Saturday, ending his 13 years at the helm of the Catholic and Vincentian institution.
