Brenau University Women’s College graduates enter the university’s front lawn Friday afternoon during the school’s 134th commencement exercise.

Brenau University Women’s College celebrated its 134th commencement exercise Friday afternoon. A total of 171 students received their diplomas. The featured speaker was Princeton University professor Anne-Marie Slaughter, formerly the top official for policy and planning in the U.S. Department of State and recently named president of the New America Foundation. Slaughter urged graduates to “follow your heart” in making career and family choices. “It is up to us to make it a woman’s world, but to make it a woman’s world, we’ve got to make it a man’s world as well. It has got to be both,” she said. Today, a commencement ceremony is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. for Brenau University graduate students and other undergraduates, featuring Newsweek/DailyBeast political columnist and television commentator Eleanor Clift.
