Advice for the Graduates?

June is graduation season and if you are completing a program, congratulations! (And for those of you still finishing a program, we’re excited for you and want to remind you that the ADA is here to help you throughout your career.)

Whether it’s a formal commencement address or an informal conversation at a reception, there is lots of advice for the new graduate. The best advice we got was if you do a good job of managing your money when times are good, you’ll have an easier go of it when times are bad.

No matter what your plans are after school, the ADA has a membership option that’s just right for you.

What’s the best advice you can give a new graduate? Leave your answers in the comments.
