This week marked the 25th Anniversary of the release of the movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. It remains one of the most iconic films of all time that deals with teenage rebellion, mischief, and playing mind-games with authority. It has also stood the test of time in remaining laugh-out-loud funny when watched again and again the last quarter century.

In case, you’re one of the 37 people left on the planet who’s *not* familiar with the movie, it’s about a a high school wise guy (Ferris Bueller) on the verge of getting his high school graduation diploma, who is determined to have a day off from school, despite of what the principal thinks of that.

“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

That’s one of many, many classic lines from the film, and like the movie around it, it also stands the test of time. If you don’t take the opportunities given you to slow down every once in awhile and just enjoy what you’re seeing, you’ll be missing it even more once it’s gone.

As I join the Beyond Graduation Management team in taking our first steps on this incredible Journey that we’ve been fortunate enough to be given by our Founder &, CEO Mike Fischler, I have taken the time to stop and look around, and appreciate all of it. I realize that we’re poised to create a never-before-seen partnership and fundraising model with Universities, Colleges, Career Schools and Learning Centers that will change the way people express and exhibit their Alumni Pride.

And I think that anyone who’s ever met Mike and joined him in his pursuits and aspirations, would echo the character Grace from the movie in saying, ” . . they all adore him. They think he’s a righteous dude. “
