Is this grammatically correct?

Recommended Posts

Hmmm, I'm not so sure. It seems to me, after reading the following definitions from dictionary.com, that it should have been written either "Clinton graduated from Georgetown", or "Georgetown graduated Clinton", or possibly "Clinton was graduated BY Georgetown", not "WAS graduated FROM Georgetown".



Graduate (From Dictionary.com -- only listing relevant definitions)


–verb (used without object)

6. to receive a degree or diploma on completing a course of study (often fol. by from): She graduated from college in 1985.


–verb (used with object)

8. to confer a degree upon, or to grant a diploma to, at the close of a course of study, as in a university, college, or school: Cornell graduated eighty students with honors.
