How will you?

MSU News - May 18, 2016 - 2:58pm
Give back. Save lives. Stand up for what's right. Engineer cleaner energy. Save the bees. Stop ignorance. Never give up. Fix climate change. Create musicals that inspire. Provide clean water to the world. Educate the leaders of tomorrow. Inspire the next generation. Wow. Talk about lofty goals. Those were just a few of the hundreds of answers we got when we asked graduating Spartans what they will do to make a better tomorrow. Judging by the responses, I'm thinking we should feel pretty confident about our tomorrows when we're sending these young Spartans out into the world. For anyone worried about this generation, rest easy. Spartans have got you covered. This year, thanks to the brilliant idea of my coworker, Ellen, we decided to find out just what kinds of things we can expect of our graduating seniors. We (well, mostly our student interns) spent a week or so before graduation hauling white boards around campus getting students to write down their plans for a better tomorrow. Like I said, wow. I was lucky enough to have board duty outside of Breslin Center during commencement. Watching student after student come up and write his or her pledge on the board was incredibly inspirational.
