Many colleges and universities across North Carolina have added thousands of alumni. Students from UNC-Chapel Hill and Duke University were among those to turn their tassels Sunday.
Harvard surgeon and best-selling author Atul Gawande spoke at UNC's commencement. The theme of Gawande's speech was how to find the right place to live and work after graduation.
"One thing I came to realize after college was that the search for purpose is really a search for a place, not an idea," says Gawande.
