This is a major milestone in a graduate's life.You represent the best in all of us who seek to better ourselves, and just because you've reached your goal, you haven't reached your objective. Make someone around you a better person, or make your community better and continue your education. Lt. Gen. Hejlik (from the 2009 graduation opening remarks)
