“On behalf of Khon Kaen University, I congratulate all of the graduates who have succeeded in the studies at Khon Kaen University. Your graduation is the pride of yourself, your family and the University.
Khon Kaen University is pleased to welcome you back to the university for this degree conferral occasion, which is a very important opportunity of your life. All of the graduates, notwithstanding whether you have completed a 4-year, a 6-year program, or a graduate level, the study period of each of which may differ, have the chances to utilize the experiences and knowledge learned from the university for your professional benefits. The world now, however, is changing rapidly all the time. Therefore, the most important thing for you as the graduates is self-adjustment, which involves learning of new things and new technologies. In addition, you need to keep sharpening your skills. All of you must have heard that in order to survive in this modern world, it is not necessary to be the smartest person or the strongest person, but it is more important to know how to adjust oneself. I hope all of you will apply what you have learned for the benefits of yourself and hope that you will succeed in your occupation, no matter whereabout in the society you will be.”
