With more than 17,700 graduates earning their degrees this spring, the Class of 2017 has already made its mark as the largest graduating class in UMass history. To help our recent grads as they embark on the next chapter of their lives, we’ve asked alumni to share some words of wisdom about work and life.
We begin with advice from retired Red Sox slugger David Ortiz, who spoke at the UMass Dartmouth Center for Marketing Research’s annual scholarship dinner in late April and gave students there some pointers they won’t soon forget. Have some words of wisdom to help guide a new graduate? Submit your advice here.
