    Hillary Clinton appeared at a private event at Wellesley College Thursday night, speaking to students at her alma mater about the presidential election and her time at the college.

    The event was closed to the media, and a previously scheduled livestream was canceled “to ensure this remains a private Wellesley event,” according to the student newspaper, The Wellesley News.

    According to the newspaper’s posts on Twitter, Clinton told the audience that as a woman running for office, “You know you’re going to be subject to unfair and beside-the-point criticism.”

    She also answered questions from the audience, the newspaper reported. When a student asked, “What would you change about your campaign?” Clinton replied, “I’d win.”

    Clinton, who graduated from the college in 1969, will return to Wellesley College in May to speak at its commencement ceremony.
