The Commencement Speech That Generation Z Deserves to Hear

     I’ve spent the past few weekends attending live and virtual graduation ceremonies for many friends and family. These resilient graduates who are members of Generation Z (the generation born from 1997 to 2010) overcame so many challenges over the past couple of years.

“A Day in the Life at Corona College, Fall 2020”

“A Day in the Life at Corona College, Fall 2020”

In less than six weeks, as many as two-thirds of the country’s college students may physically return to campus. Truly, no one knows what to expect for these very “social” creatures. Just this week, the Ivy League schools and many other colleges announced fall “plans” containing scenarios for which no student (or parent) can realistically […]
