In her speech for today's Convocation ceremony, Cappy may have alluded to the Colorado mayor scandal from last month in which Susan Osborne claimed to be a Vassar alumna even though she never graduated. The AAVC defended her, stating that anyone who attended Vassar can be considered an alumna or alumnus, although the original whistleblower disagreed.
In her speech, Cappy took the position of the AAVC in stating that anyone who matriculates is an alumnus or alumna, not just those who actually graduate.
P.S. Speaking of Convocation, thanks to now former VSA President Mat Leonard '11 for mentioning Mads in his speech!
