Later today, I will have the honor of addressing the graduating students of Patricia Stevens College, including the school’s first baccalaureate class. President Cynthia Musterman asked me to be certain to include in my speech some immediately useful advice for her eminently practical students.

Here is some of it:

  • Write good thank you letters
  • Clean up your FaceBook page and cancel your Friendster account right now
  • Be on time
  • Keep your word
  • Don’t buy bottled water
  • Borrow cautiously and pay back your student loans
  • Don’t make excuses
  • Learn from your mistakes
  • Smile a lot
  • Do not always follow directions
