Female Alumnae Praising SEAS and Decorating the 1 Train
Written by Bwog Staff
Remember Miss Subway competitions? No, because they were discontinued after 1976 (save a one year revival in 2004). But we should all pretend to be nostalgic for them now that, with the help of a tipster, we have found a former Columbia student winner!
After extensive research (read: some Googling), we know nothing about the smart and seductive Helen Lee except what her Miss Subway sign tells us. She studied Chinese, trained in voice and liked interior decorating and football games when “escorted by her Yale beau.” Yale!? Okay, since your pastimes are as archetypal as you are beautiful, we’ll forgive you. The Miss Subways just held a reunion, so maybe Helen was there!
In completely unrelated alumna awesomeness, Megan McCain went on The View recently to praise her Alma Mater. “I was around all these, like, MENSA scholars,” she said of her Columbia classmates, adding, “There’s a really good school at Columbia that’s specifically for math and science.” The one downside is that she was comparing Columbia’s prowess to The View and its hosts. But still, intellectual compliments? SEAS love? Looks like another high-profile alumnus just got one-upped.
