In the Media:


Shown here are pages from the special issue of The Colgate Maroon’s coverage of the graduation ceremony, O’Brien’s speech and reactions from faculty, administrators, and fellow students. The commentary covering O’Brien’s speech was largely negative, claiming that the speech was in “bad faith.”  Bishop J. Mosley, who received an honorary degree that day, praised O’Brien and stated, “When a high ranking member of the administration makes an appearance, he must expect that the people will speak out.”
