In this regard, I find it necessary for me to address you with a few insights that I hope will help you in a journey that requires seriousness, diligence, and perseverance, except for what is imposed on us by law and morals. First, my aim is that this be an investment that benefit you in seeking knowledge, building character in dialogues and discussions, accepting and openness to the other, forgiveness, tolerance, belonging and pride in your families, communities and country.
Second, to seek knowledge with all the strength you have been given to qualify you to make your future with your own hands, because each one of you is different from the other in something and distinguished from it in something else. Therefore, you must strive to consolidate your distinction and uniqueness in that thing.

Fourth, you have to belong to this place with all of its details and components. Belonging to the university and preserving its capabilities is an integral part of belonging to the homeland. You must belong in action, practice, sincere hard work, and affiliation by rejecting paralysis, regionalism, and bias towards inhuman and uncivilized ties and considerations.
Fifth, you have to examine your convictions, perceptions, and practices on the basis of preparedness.
It is absolutely necessary to change and retract it if it collides with human and civilized values in society and the university. Note that the homeland is for all and humanity unites us regardless of our origins, identities, beliefs and regions.
Sixth, you must adopt human values in your relationships and practices. As a part of you innate abilities, you must have determination, perseverance, boldness, and will to confront the culture of interest and benefit that has come to dominate many people’s relationships with each other in this era. More so, to build your relationships on foundations and human ideals whose essence is acceptance, comfort and respect.
Seventh, you must follow the path of integrity, accuracy, objectivity, credibility, and self-reliance in the work, assignments, and academic tests that you present, because the future will reveal to you the value of diligence, diligence, perseverance, and integrity that you adhered to at the first stations of experience in your practical life that will come soon.
Eighth, you must prioritize your educational attainment and pursue every available learning opportunity and create other learning opportunities on your own, especially as we live in a world full of opportunities based on sources of learning that were never available in human history. Therefore, seize every opportunity to acquire knowledge and build your personalities and convictions.
Ninth, you must show determination to face the challenges and difficulties imposed by the nature of university life. Your journey is not crowned with roses and you will always face challenges at different times, but they are not overwhelming or impossible to overcome.
Tenth, you must know that your future begins from here, with knowledge and opportunities. Be aware that you are responsible for creating it with diligence, credibility, integrity, respect, and a deep belief in accepting the other and coexistence.

I wish them continued success, excellence and under the shadow of His Majesty, King Abdullah II Ibn Al-Hussein, may God protect and preserve him and his trustworthy Crown Prince, His Highness Prince Al-Hussein Bin Abdullah II.
