We don’t stop going to school when we graduate.”

Carol Burnett

Throughout the country, students prepare to walk across a stage and pick up a piece of paper that signifies the end of an era. Graduation is an event many students look forward to: no more reading assignments, no more tests or quizzes to study for, no more papers to write. While graduation ceremonies allow families and friends to celebrate the end of significant academic achievements, you must not sit content with what you learned during the past 2 or 4 years. Learning continues beyond the academic environment, and remaining open to different opportunities will help you build upon the knowledge gained in school. Keep in mind: if you stop learning, you stop growing.
