Did you see our post about a Colorado mayor who caused a scandal after she lied about graduating from Vassar? Now the AAVC is actually defending her, saying that she does technically count as a Vassar alumna. In a letter to the Daily Camera, which helped break the story about mayor Susan Osborne, Executive Director of AAVC Patricia Lichtenberg '90 writes:
"I am confirming that Susan Osborne ’66 is an alumna of Vassar College. Although Ms. Osborne did not complete her degree at Vassar, she was a matriculant here, a status that qualifies her to be a Vassar alumna once her class has graduated. Indeed, she is an alumna in good standing and we are proud to include her in the ranks of our more than 36,000 alumnae and alumni worldwide."
