The Only CCE Email You Might Actually Read

The oft-deleted weekly CCE email from Niamh (pronounced “Neev”; it’s Irish) O’Brien contained a special surprise today—a shout-out to the 118th Varsity Show, in which she was sharply parodied by Rebekah Lowin, CC ’14, as a scheming villain who changed the Core into a series of classes on unethical businesses for future I-bankers and consultants. Instead taking offense, Niamh congratulated Rebekah on “her flawless performance as the show’s protagonist.” Here’s the full email:

Did you see the Varsity Show?
What an incredible display of the talent and creativity that makes the Columbia community such a pleasure to be a part of! Congratulations to the entire cast and crew, especially Rebekah Lowin, for her flawless performance as the show’s protagonist!

Regarding the show’s story of the struggle many students face when it comes to choosing a career path: We’ve all been there and we’re here to help you uncover your passions and get to a place where you can fulfill them. Do some digging and you’ll find a very broad range of opportunities to do what you love!

Enjoy the last day of classes and good luck with final exams. And, to the students involved the 118th Annual Varsity Show, thank you for making our Friday night so witty and fun!

Best,
Neeeeeev and the rest of CCE

    @Anonymous Dude, I read all of Niamh’s emails, including this one. Met her once and she was as cool as she sounded in the email.
