BRIDGEWATER, Va. (WHSV) — Bridgewater College has announced their schedule of fall 2019 events, and some familiar names are scheduled as guests to the college.

Among them is Monica Lewinsky, former White House intern thrown into the public spotlight for an affair with then-President Bill Clinton.

In the last years, Lewinsky has worked to change her image. Bridgewater identified her as "a social activist in the battle against online harassment—advocating for a safer social media environment."

She's also now helping produce the next chapter of FX's "American Crime Story," which will dramatize the Clinton impeachment scandal.

Her visit to the college – planned for 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 17 at Nininger Hall – is sponsored by the Anna B. Mow Symposium and the W. Harold Row Symposium.
