Cable industry pioneer and two-time Bowling Green State University alumnus Robert Clasen had three nuggets of wisdom to impart on his fellow Falcons: be reflective, adapt to change and understand that excellence and integrity are not mutually exclusive.
Clasen, who earned both his bachelor's and master's degrees from BGSU, addressed graduates on Saturday during the university's 278th commencement ceremony at the Stroh Center.
"I've had quite a career, but sooner or later there comes a time to look back and see how it all happened," Clasen said.
"What I discovered is when I left BG, I was already a pretty complete package," he said. 
It was lessons he learned while in college, he said, that helped prepare him for a successful career in the media industry. His 40-year career included time as chairman and chief executive officer of Starz, LLC;

TONTOGANY – Students at Otsego Elementary will have a new principal starting late next month.
In its final meeting of the year on Thursday, the Otsego School Board approved Betsey Murry as the school’s new principal, effective Jan. 20, 2014.
Murry is currently the assistant principal at the school, and will succeed James Garber, the current principal and former Otsego superintendent, in the post.
It was announced late last month that Garber is stepping down, effective Jan. 17, after 6 1/2 years in the district.
“She started in August,” Superintendent Adam Koch said of Murry. “Very impressed by her dedication and work ethic to Otsego already.”
“I heard an administrator from another school district say we’ve got the top with Betsey,” board member Julie Snyder said.
Her salary will be $81,000 annually.

PERRYSBURG - Christmas came early for drama students at Perrysburg High School.
Instead of their usual Friday class, teacher Rob Gentry's students listened intently as alumnus Jeff Seibenick shared how he's been able to make a career in film and television - with tales of his celebrity encounters mixed in.
Seibenick's message was straightforward - if a job like his is the only one you can picture yourself doing, then go for it. And don't give up.
To be successful in show business, you have to "literally know this is all that you can do for the rest of your life," he said.
"Because if it's not, there's 100 people lining up outside the door to do the job that you don't want to do."
Seibenick, a 1994 PHS graduate, attended the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, where he worked with a few people whose names may be a bit more recognizable, at least nationally.

Eric Myers is again leaving Bowling Green Schools, and this time he says it's for good.
Myers will end his 12-year run on the school board at the end of this month. He chose not to run for reelection.
This is Myers' second time "retiring" from the school district.
In 2000, he stepped down as assistant superintendent.
He has spent 41 years working for and leading the district.
During his years here, he also has served as special needs and work experience teacher; wrestling, golf, football and girls track coach; as high school athletic director; and high school principal.
"It's had its moments," he said about being on the opposite side of running the district as a school board member.
"I felt I had some unusual background (to run) for school board," Myers said about the decision he made 12 years ago. "This seemed to be something I knew something about."
