(words of advice for college graduates … + the starfish poem)
life is too short not to do something that matters art print >> Looking for something a bit less extravagant? This print is also available on a t-shirt!
Update >> Since graduation season is once again upon us, we have decided to republish this post since it seems as relevant seven years later as the day we wrote it. In those seven years, Daniel has gone on to forge a distinguished career in education. And, in my ever so humble opinion, he truly is heeding his commencement speaker's advice and both doing something that matters & helping to save the world. And while I am at it, I want to congratulate two of my nieces who are graduating this spring, Katie and Sami. Two more graduates who I am certain will make their mark in the world!
My son, along with his peers from across the country, graduated from college this year. Our family had the honor of listening to Steven Chu, Secretary of Energy in the Obama administration, deliver the Washington University of St Louis commencement address. Chu, in his own uniquely charming and witty way, told the graduates his “take home message to you will be just one sentence. Actually, it will be just four words.”
“Do something that matters.”

Almost 2 years later, we still love Minted's Minibook Graduation Announcements!
Wow! We are always impressed by our visitors creativity but you have to check out the Graduation Announcement Reflections MiniBook Vicki assembled in honor of her daughter's graduation from University of Southern California (USC). As one of our early winners of a $50.00 Minted gift certificate, she used this most generous gift to its full advantage. We absolutely love this elegant way to handle graduation announcements. Rather than send a cheap, flimsy typical graduation announcement that truthfully, we often view as a solicitation for a gift, this graduation minibook is truly a celebration of her daughter's four years of college. It is informative, is is gorgeous, and reflects school spirit and the warmth and pride of the family. Thank you Vicki for sharing and introducing us to these unique graduation announcements!!!

We are so sorry. It looks as if FTD is no longer carrying college roses 🙁
Whether you are an entering college freshman or a university alum, FTD offers an extraordinary selection of rainbow roses that will help you celebrate your school colors and your school spirit. Although they do not yet have vases that represent every university FTD has indicated that it is working hard to forge relationships with more and more colleges across the county.
If you are a current student (or are related to one) these fabulous bi-color rose bouquets can both be given and received for such special occasions as birthdays and graduation but they also make festive additions to homecoming events, football games, Greek parties and “deliveries”, and best yet, to celebrate the many accomplishments and milestones reached throughout your life.
