—Sawan Amoah, senior international business major
"He has been a vital piece of the puzzle in bringing Thiel back to prominence. He wished he had come back to the place he loved much earlier, and gave us the advice to give back as much and as soon as possibly can because this college is a special place."
—Dan Mackall, senior business communication major
"Find a management/leadership style that fits you. Don't think in terms of authority, rather responsibility. Measure your success by the success of others. Find something you love and do it with passion. Work is hard, therefore work hard. Every new experience prepares you in some way to meet a future challenge. Be open to unseen possibilities. Associate with successful people and organizations. Listen and pay attention. Be lucky; lucky meaning where preparation meets opportunity. The day you graduate is not the day you are through learning."
—Kimberly Holdsworth, senior art major
"He also told us that you need to surround yourself with successful people and to learn everything you can from them. Accept the help of mentors and those around you even when the people are younger than you are. He then spoke of sharing your success by becoming a steward of Thiel."
—Ashley Habel, senior business administration major
