I endorse Charles Wheelan's sentiments in his Wall Street Journal piece, "Ten Things Your Commencement Speaker Won't Tell You."
I particularly embrace #4, "Marry Someone Smarter Than You Are." This paragraph is pretty much my life story, swapping "software company" for "education non-profit."
I do take issue with one element of #1, "Your Time in Fraternity Basements Was Well Spent." Wheelan is thinking of time spent building lifetime relationships, based on making "meaningful connections with other human beings." Merely drinking together will not do that. And hookups have a negative effect.
Enjoy Commencement season.
