Lena Dunham Gets a Graduation "Redo"

May 20 2013 - 11:15am

Lena Dunham received a Medal of Distinction from Barnard College in NYC yesterday. She accepted the award alongside two other important individuals: Elizabeth Diller, the architect for the Big Apple's famed High Line, and Jimmie Briggs, a journalist and human rights activist. Lena tweeted her excitement about the event, writing, "I'm a guest at Barnard College graduation today. At my own graduation I sobbed, hit my mother and fell asleep, so pretty psyched for a redo." Afterward, Lena accompanied her boyfriend, Fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff, to the studio to watch him record a track and Instagrammed the adventure, writing, "Take your girlfriend to work night."

Lena wasn't the only star who made a stop by a college graduation over the past week — Michelle Obama gave the commencement speech at Bowie State University [1] on Friday while her husband, Barack Obama, spoke at Morehouse College on Sunday.
