Best College Commencement Advice for New Graduates

In the coming weeks, students around the nation will hear their names read aloud, walk across a platform and move their tassels to signify graduation from high school or college. After years of working toward receiving their diploma or degree, they are now off to start a new adventure in their lives.

For many of these graduates, there’s the exhilaration of stepping into a new phase – whether it’s heading off to college or starting their careers. And, for others, there may be the apprehension of not knowing what is next.

As a college president, here are five pieces of advice I have for graduating seniors.

1. Savor the moment.he past few years leading up to graduation weren’t easy. They were probably met with tears, frustration, late nights and struggles. When you walk across the stage, cherish the moment. Recognize everything you went through to get where you are today. You deserve to be acknowledged, so enjoy it.

In a commencement address at Howard University in 2018, Chadwick Boseman, the late award-winning actor, said, “So, savor the taste of your triumphs today. Don’t just swallow the moment whole without digesting what has actually happened here. Look down over what you conquered and appreciate what God has brought you through.

2. Step into the day with gratitude Graduation ceremonies go by quickly. Make sure someone takes photos of you when you walk across the stage and with people who have helped you get there. And, take the time to thank every individual who propelled you to where you are today.

I told my son when he graduated that he may have been at the top of his class but when he starts his new job he will be the least qualified in the company. Of course, I had no idea what I was talking about until reality hit that even the high school drop out there new more about what was going on there. It was a necessary humbling experience. His ego took a huge hit. He became a little wiser that day.

What? #1 and #2 in the excerpt and no “GO WOKE” or “DIVERSITY IS OUR STRENGTH” advice? Something is obviously seriously wrong here.

Acquire land. Build a home with great thought. Make those your sole investments. Spend your life fortifying it and becoming self reliant.

“To all you graduates, as you go out in the world, my advice to you is… Don’t go! It’s rough out there. Move back with your parents. Let them worry…”
