Kellogg celebrated the graduation of the Class of 2015 this past weekend. Prior to the ceremony, Kellogg’s faculty members were asked to offer their advice to the new graduates.
Their responses ranged from the ideas of working hard and constantly learning to remembering to smile and focusing on more than just work.
Take a look at the more than 60 pieces of advice.

Good morning, graduates!
Today is a big day and you should feel very proud. My Kellogg journey has been shared with many of you, so I am sure you know this day is particularly meaningful to me as well. Your graduation, the convocation events this week and the exit conversations I’ve had with members of this class have inspired a bit of personal reflection.
Over the last 15 + years, I’ve developed five “life mottos” that I wanted to pass along to you to consider as you take the next step in your life journey.
Last month’s Kellogg graduation ceremony marked a milestone for me as assistant dean: the first class of two-year students I admitted completed their studies and are going out into the world. I know what they’re feeling — as a Kellogg alum myself, I remember how much I grew and developed during my time in the program, both personally and professionally. In the 15 years since, over and over again I’ve seen firsthand the value of the Kellogg degree. It opens doors to new and incomparable opportunities.
