The future's so bright...

May 2, 2017 - 10:47pm
Yep. I gotta wear shades. It's the week of graduation here on campus and while we've had our fair share of cloudy weather, our tomorrows are absolutely brilliant with possibilities. It's time to turn loose another group of Spartan graduates to make their marks and change the world. I'm telling you, you should feel pretty confident about their abilities. These Spartans, like all Spartans, are ready to make a difference. They're smart, determined, resourceful, compassionate and prepared to get to work solving whatever challenges they meet. In all honesty, they make me feel a bit inadequate. They've already had tons of successes before they're old enough to rent a car. Last Friday, I was at a reception for four graduates from the Social Science Scholars program. I'm a mentor in the program to a terrific young woman who isn't finished with her studies yet, but we were all invited to join the celebration. These four students are graduating in just three years of college - while completing internships, working, studying abroad, volunteering, running clubs and doing scientific research. On top of all that, they're just really cool, nice people. The same thing goes for the student interns I've worked with in our office this year. They're pretty incredible and have done terrific work for us. One of them has never missed or been late to a class his entire career at MSU. Add on a double major, Honors College, multiple internships, jobs, a standup career and writing, producing and starring in an award-winning documentary and well, I'm feeling a little lame right now. Some days I'm just lucky to make it through unscathed.
