Segment Description
Graduates of Dartmouth College's class of 2009 got to see Boston Celtics great Bill Russell get an honorary degree. And they heard from writer Louise Erdrich that humans are in a nose dive unless we can change as a species. The Ivy League school's 236th commencement on Sunday saw about 1,700 students receive degrees of various types. Erdrich told her audience that humanity is in dire shape. She urged students to make their lives doing what they do best, but added they should "do it as if it was meant to save the world." Russell didn't speak. He played with the Celtics in the 1950s and '60s and helped lead them to 11 National Basketball Association championships.
