Correction

Bennington College drama professor Sherry Kramer was misquoted in the article published Monday on 1A, "Bennington College holds 79th commencement ceremony." Her quote should have read: "I asked some of my students what they wanted to hear today. They said ‘don't lie to us; don't make out that the world we are going into is better than it is; don't be so optimistic about our present,' and so uncertainty is what I want to talk to you about."
