In the past month, graduates from Utah and LDS colleges and universities have listened to commencement speakers ranging from leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to the first Iranian in space, from a two-time presidential candidate to a president of a sports apparel brand.

Their counsel to graduates varied, though they usually led to the same point: preparation and proper choices are key to finding success in the future.

The statewide commencement ceremonies will wrap up when Westminster welcomes Sundance Institute founder Robert Redford to its ceremony June 1.

I had the opportunity to hear Rabbi Schmuley at SUU's commencement. It was very inspiring. I walked out of there feeling like I could take on the world.
