Learning Never Ends


Sometimes "Commencement" does not require a black square cap or trumpets on a red carpet. It is a silent moment; a passage taken within your mind and/or heart. One door closes, another opens. Here below are a collection of arguably some of the best. Whose did we forget? Let us know! [email protected] 


Here you may personalize your graduate's moment with (or without) a "go forward" quote and your favorite photograph:

Make Good Art

Make Your Bed: Little Things That Can Change Your Life...and Maybe the World

William H McRaven

This powerful little book will surprise you. Raven distilled SEALS training into some darn pretty good (and easy to follow) advice. Its most indelible may surprise (coming from the U.S. Navy....)

What Now?
