Dwayne Johnson at UM commencement

It's probably fitting that a star of action movies would encourage college graduates to take action. "Don't be lulled into the complacency of accepting a future or path that's just okay and mediocre. It will seep into every aspect of your life," Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, a 1995 UM graduate said at a 2009 commencement. "Your path, when rooted firmly in passion, will be filled with the most powerful catalyst to greatness, inspired action. I tell you this from my heart, graduates. My life is all about inspired action."
