Writing in a graduation card doesn't take a P.H.D., but it can feel challenging. Usually there is some sort of message already in the card, but figuring out what to add is difficult. Use the following examples to help you come up with something smart.
Graduation is a time of celebration, so messages should be congratulatory and hopeful. It is also appropriate to give a little advice or inspiration if you would like. Make your card stand out by offering some unique words. Giving the graduate something challenging to think about will help him or her refocus energy on the next positive step. Write something funny to give the graduate something to help relieve stress.
