Beyond Graduation

Although disappointing to not participate in the traditional celebratory graduations, for the Class of 2020, what are the opportunities as they commence into the next stage of their lives?

The Class of 2020 graduates into a time where asking tough questions about the status quo is the norm. Many are asking, “What is normal?” We’ve entered into a period of worldwide reinvention.

Thus, new grads would be wise to reflect on the meaning of their life experiences to date and envision the life they want to live. Then, like others around the world, new grads can be nimble and ready for what’s next.
