In the days after her son Graham hanged himself in his dormitory room at Hamilton College (NY), Gina Burton went about settling his affairs in a blur of efficiency, her grief tinged with a nagging sense that something did not add up.  She fielded requests and sympathy notes from the college, promising the dean of students a copy of his obituary “so you can see how special Hamilton was to him.” This was why his suicide “makes no sense,” she added in a puzzled aside. But two weeks later, she read her son’s journal and everything changed. Mr. Burton, a sophomore, wrote that he was flunking three of his four classes and called himself a “failure with no life prospects.”

Commencement Speech at Sweet Briar Leaves Many Alumnae Furious

Commencement Speech at Sweet Briar Leaves Many Alumnae Furious

May 14, 2018

The commencement address at Sweet Briar College (VA) stunned many attendees, who found it sexist and demeaning to the Me Too movement and feminism. Some of the new graduates and other alumnae who have learned of the remarks are expressing anger on social media -- not only about the speech but about an email sent out by the college's president Sunday that noted the controversy but did not challenge the remarks that were made. Many said that the speech and the college's lack of strong reaction to it send the wrong message, particularly at a women's college.
