My Imaginary Commencement Speech: Five Graduation Myths to Avoid

By Stan Guthrie

It’s an honor to stand here before you and share my first (and perhaps only) commencement address with the Class of 2014. More than a million and a half of you are walking the stage to receive your college degrees this this year, and you have my hearty congratulations. After all, only 30 percent of American adults have earned one, so you are, at least statistically, a member of the educated elite.

But please don’t let this go to your head.
