What do you know for sure?
Looking back fifteen years to Oprah’s 2000 commencement address at Roosevelt University in a standing room only Auditorium Theater, she told 675 graduates that “change will only come about in our lives when we welcome it.” As students, or former students, you have welcomed change into your lives by pursuing your educational goals, making time to learn, and challenging yourselves to do your best work.
As we finish another year of achievement, growth, and discovery, take a few moments to reflect and acknowledge your accomplishments. You deserve it!
Then, add a comment to this post to tell us:
- What have you learned in your courses this past year? What best practices, tools, or strategies will you use in the future?
- What change will you welcome into your life as you prepare to graduate (or move closer to graduation)?
