A Little Humility Goes a Long Way


Congrats, grads! Be grateful for the opportunity you’ve had to spend time at Columbia. If you resist the lure of Wall Street, the establishment law firms, and all that, you’ll not only have a happier life but you can enjoy the infinite pleasures of giving back, to repay the world for the privilege of attending and graduating from an Ivy League school. Be humble, and thank your lucky stars.
