Presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s alma mater, Wellesley College, released audio excerpts on Monday from the 1969 commencement speech delivered by the 21-year-old then known as Hillary Rodham.

Ruth Adams, then-president of Wellesley, introduced Clinton, calling her “cheerful, good humored, good company, and a good friend to all of us.”

“Fear is always with us but we just don’t have time for it. Not now,” Clinton said during the 1969 speech, a sentiment she echoed last week, when she compared the choice between Republican Donald Trump and herself to a choice between a “fearful America” and a “strong, confident America,” respectively.
