Although fictional Cornell alumnus Andy Bernard ’95 was not present at Senior Convocation Saturday, the actor who played Bernard — Ed Helms — told Class of 2014 graduates to always be fools.

“As you look ahead and ponder your lives after four years of extensive learning — having been taught by some of the greatest minds on the planet, studying late nights for endless exams and essays — please remember to be a fool,” said Helms, who is also known for his role in The Hangover trilogy.
