U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor says young college students should embrace the pursuit of knowledge, learn how to give to others, and keep their friends and family close.

Sotomayor visited the University of Delaware on Thursday to talk about her best-selling memoir, entitled "My Beloved World," which was published earlier this year.

In a speech aimed at first-year students but which at times sounded like a commencement address, Sotomayor said college offered the opportunity to "become a more interesting person" by seeking new knowledge and sharing it with others.

Sotomayor, the first Hispanic justice on the Supreme Court, was nominated for the Supreme Court in 2009 by President Barack Obama and sworn in later that year.

Her appearance at UD was part of a university diversity initiative.
