We're talking about future speakers at Notre Dame; Pence is a past speaker. The other two were at Berkeley. Neither of them got to speak.
Fair enough. They acted disrespectfully, though, not just to Pence, but to the faculty, staff, and fellow graduates.
Please show me where I have called you any of that.
There are two ways to get called names. One is to interact with disrespectful people. The solution is to avoid them. The other way is to be disrespectful yourself. The solution is to not be disrespectful.
You decide which course is correct in your case.
That was against her policies. From your response, I would presume she was actively promoting them during the time you were protesting.
Which policies was Pence espousing during the commencement ceremony that were being protested?

That student, and those who walked out with him/her. Made the exact same decision you are now proud of yourself for making all those years ago.
They stood their ground, remained true to their principles, and refused to allow what they believed to be an unacceptable choice for commencement speaker "hijack" what was their "sacred" day.
If anything, they proved that their principles were even more sacred to them than perhaps yours were to you; they were willing to sacrifice a part of graduation ceremony, for which I'm sure they worked no less hard than you to achieve, to stay true to their beliefs,
While you chose to compromise.

Yes, you're free to think these college graduates are stupid. I didn't even call people on the right stupid, but got called out for calling some of them low-information voters.
But if you don't have any knowledge of the actions by Pence when he was governor and a member of Congress, do I get to call you stupid?
The hallmark of the young is "stupid decisions".
And im free to think their protest stupid
