Lessons Beyond the Classroom

Every student who has ever suffered through a long-winded graduation speech has heard the same message: Graduation should mark the commencement, not the conclusion, of learning. One is reminded of the wise old professor who once remarked, “A college education never hurt anyone willing to learn something after-ward.”

This fact was not lost on philosopher George Santayana, who wrote, “The wisest mind has something yet to learn.”
