ON-Lion Letter

There were thousands of college commencement speeches around the country this year for the Class of 2015.  But there was one missing -- one very truthful, funny and witty speech that graduates should have heard, but didn't.  Well, here it is.  Delivered by Bradley Prize recipient George F. Will, the speech is featured online as a Prager University course.

"Members of the Graduating Class:  You who are about to receive your diplomas should also receive an apology from this university -- and a refund of a large portion of the tuition you have paid," Will begins.

"You have been cheated, bilked, propagandized and badly educated," he continues.  "Your tuition has been much too costly, for which you can blame the federal government and the avarice of the university."

"So, graduates:  You have been saddled with debt and bad ideas.  Good Luck.  You're going to need it," Will concludes.

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee supports Prager University.  Will serves on Bradley's Board of Directors.
