(Radio.com) Steven Van Zandt served the commencement address at Rutgers University this past Sunday (May 14). One of the founding members of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band, Van Zandt urged the graduates at High Point Solutions Stadium on Rutgers' Busch campus to be authentic as they go out into the world to chase their dreams.

"Authenticity worked for Bruce. It worked for David Chase," the rocker said, referencing Springsteen and the creator of The Sopranos."Embrace your Jersey roots and authenticity. Jersey strong. It doesn't matter where you're from. You're in the Jersey family now."

The musician and actor also stressed the importance for each graduate to find "greatness" in their lives, reported NJ.com. "Lead us into a green future. Reach for greatness, nothing less. And make sure you have some fun along the way. Life should never be boring. Congratulations. Go get 'em," Van Zandt said. Read more here.
