“Cease conceiving of education as mere preparation for later life, and make it the full meaning of the present life.”

A few months ago, I shared these words of the great American Philosopher John Dewey with the 2016 Graduating Class of my former Community College, as I sought to impress upon their young lives that education is about the incremental attainment of a better you.

So today, regardless of whether your college or university is ranked number 1 or 100 in your country, remember that what matters most is not the status or profile of the institution, but what you as the individual make of your world of opportunities now.
