“Never be satisfied with anything less than your true potential”
[the list of possible true potentials can be found on page 14 of the student handbook]
“Live each day like it could be your last”
[the wisdom of this one actually depends entirely on the extent of your imagination]
"Don't be afraid to rock the boat"
[note: all that's really changed is that we've built a boat impervious to ideology, get close enough to it with anything else and you'll see how nasty we are when we're seasick.]
"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."
[be aware, if they actually mind enough they begin to matter in rather unpleasant ways]
"Our diversity makes us strong, every perspective is valuable"

“You can tell me anything”
[that’s really weird. Seriously, like, ew. I meant we could commiserate about not meeting our families’ expectations or something]
