Dunham, who graduated from Ohio's Oberlin College in 2008, received the medal at Radio City Music Hall in Manhattan, and took to her Twitter page to post a photo of herself in her long, black ceremonial robe. She tweeted, "I'm a guest at Barnard College graduation today. At my own graduation I sobbed, hit my mother & fell asleep so pretty psyched for a redo."
Later in the evening, Dunham was honored again at a fundraiser she spearheaded to raise money for Brooklyn's Lutheran Medical Center.
