Do good

May 21, 2014 - 1:59pm
"Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good." I stumbled across this quote the other day, attributed to Minor Myers Jr., who was the president of Illinois Wesleyan University. He might have run another university and he may not have been a Spartan but, to me, that phrase captures the essence of what being a Spartan is all about. I know that Spartans go into the world and do well. I know lots of them and I know many have incredible success in their careers and lives. That's a great thing. They came to MSU, got an excellent education and were able to go out and do well. Who can ask for anything more out of a university? Well, Spartans do. It simply isn't enough to just do well. If you're a student, it isn't enough to just do well in class and learn from lectures and books and graduate. If you're a professor, it isn't enough to just be a good instructor in the classroom. If you're an alumnus, it isn't enough to graduate from MSU.
