Words of advice for graduating seniors...and all of us
• Work hard and pursue excellence. Reality may hurt, but don’t take it personally. It happens to everyone sooner or later.
• Keep in mind that the world doesn’t owe you a living. As a matter of fact, the world doesn’t know you yet.
• Wipe that smug look off your face. You don’t really know as much as you think you do, and you haven’t done anything yet to prove yourself.
• If you drink, don’t drive!
• It’s very important to get a job.
• You are the first graduating class of the new millennium!
