What Every Graduate Should Know

Thursday, June 05, 2014

I see others that add things that have inspired them in some way to their blogs I have been watching the video blogs from Prager Univerity. This is one that is entitled "What Every Graduate Should Know" It is a very thoughtful, insightful piece. I have learned much from these videos. Hope those that watch will learn from them also.

As a college graduate, the commencement speech is something that you can take with you into the world. America's universities have attracted some of the most successful and famous people to speak to graduates. Some commencement speakers deliver grand and inspiring speeches. Some don't say much. Dennis Prager has his own five-minute commencement speech he'd like to give to this year's college graduates. It's not the typical address, and not one you'd likely hear at most universities.

    I still laugh about what Steven Jobs said when asked to speak at the Stanford graduation some years ago. He said "Yes" and then went home upset and his wife asked what was wrong. He said "What will I say, since I never went to college but one semester?" She said "Well, just talk to them like you do your new employees at orientation, since half of them are Stanford graduates." LOL

    I like what Dave Ramsey has to say about kids going to college and running up huge debt.
