We're more than half way through commencement season here in America's college town (UMass Boston, Harvard, MIT and Wellesley will hold theirs in late May and early June). But to get a sense of what's going on outside the bubble, we offer this speech from none other than Stephen Colbert, who delivered the valedictory at the University of Virginia over the weeknd.

“Your generation needs everything to be about you,” he said, according to the Washington Post, “and that’s very upsetting to us Baby Boomers, because self-absorption is sort of our thing.”

“Every generation must define itself,” he said. “If you must find your own path, and we have left you no easy path, then decide now to choose the hard path that leads to the life and the world that you want.”
