Graduates, professors, family and friends. Graduation speeches such as this are usually filled with advice to the newly matriculated. Advice coming from experiences and adventures enjoyed so far in the past that they have little bearing on what these young people here today might be facing. So, today, I’m not going to do that.

I graduated from Roycemore in 1985. I’ve treasured my time there ever since. For the next five years, I looked for a major at USC. Classical Music Composition eventually won, after I tried Mathematics and Computer Science. I volunteered at the student radio station, eventually becoming Program Director. I worked in the Drama Department from...

Eighty pages of detailed information ranging from important issues like visa application to small details like how to write a check...

After making some hard admissions decisions, I finally chose Hamilton College as my “home” for the next 4 (or 3) years. It is a small liberal arts school with only about 1,800 undergraduate students. Hamilton has an open curriculum, allowing students to study whatever they are interested in, and economics, which I’m majoring in, is...

I’ve chosen to go to Cornell College in Mount Vernon, Iowa. I chose it because of its awesome 18-day block schedule. It will help me navigate my work under pressure and prepare me for high pressure situations in life. I’ve been at Roycemore for six years now and it has been amazing. One of my...

This fall, I will be attending the University of South Carolina (in Columbia, SC) as a part of their Honors College as well as their Top Scholars Program. While offers from big-name universities proved tempting, I believe USC will be by far the best fit for me and provide me with the best possible start...
