Stars Give Advice to Colleges' Class of 2017

Will Ferrell-"No matter how cliche it may sound, you will never truly be successful until you learn to get beyond yourself," he told the class of 2017, concluding with a rendition of "I Will Always Love You."


Oprah-"I've made a living, I've made a life, I've made a fortune, really — all good! — from being true to myself," Oprah Winfrey told the crowd at Agnes Scott College in Decatur, Georgia. "If I can leave you with any message today: The biggest reward is not financial benefits, though it's really good — you can get a lot of great shoes."

"Those of you who have a lot of shoes know having a closet full of shoes doesn't fill up your life," she continued. "Living a life of substance can. Substance through your service."


"We don't have a set amount of resilience. It's a muscle that any of us can build," Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg told Virginia Tech graduates. 


Pharrell Williams-"Engage and inspire, whether on an individual level or loudly within your communities," he said. "Talk about your accomplishments. Be humble but not too humble. Don't be invisible."
