"If I only knew then what I know now...." Sure, hindsight is 20/20. But if you could talk to your younger self, what advice would you give? What decisions would you make differently? During this graduation season,  Southwestern University President Dr. Ed Burger and KUT's Jennifer Stayton give their younger selves some words of wisdom about life and learning. Think of it as "Higher Ed's" 2016 commencement address.

Ed and Jennifer reflect back on their time in school and give their younger selves some advice. Click here to hear the discussion. They may be talking to "Lower Ed" and "Jennifer, Jr." but much of that advice still holds true today. No puzzler this week - just puzzle over the advice in this episode.
