University Email Simulator

A generic version of the email you will receive on a daily basis from the University of BS (Which is probably the school you deal with), as you will read it after the first few repetitions. Graduates can relive their college experience, or, for current students, simply stop checking your email and skim this page every day.


From: Dean of Posterior Coverage <sanjay@ubs.edu>
To: ALL-STUDENTS@UBS.EDU
Subject: Mandatory CYA Training
Body: All students need to take this course that the university paid a fortune to a third-party ed-tech carpetbagger to license, which provides the absolute minimum coverage of an issue required under a new federal regulation. Everyone must take it, because otherwise we might be liable for your behavior.
This is why tuition is so high.

To: ALL-CAMPUS@UBS.EDU

Everyone else we didn't filter out despite having the information to do so, please disregard the message... unless you belong to some other, larger group this message actually applies to but we didn't mention in the opening. In which case, gotcha.

From: Director, Center for Hurt Feelings <Amy.Dare-Obsanjo.Umdede@ubs.edu>
To: ALL-CAMPUS@UBS.EDU
Subject: Identity Group! Wedge Issue!
Body: We think we're being progressive, but are actually enacting the Rove/Crosby identity wedge strategy without even being prompted. Everyone please continue to irrationally venerate your in-group while fearing and despising your out-group.
This is why tuition is so high.

To: ALL-CAMPUS@UBS.EDU
Subject: Misinterpreted Research Result! Hype!

While on the topic, we would would like to remind everyone not to engage in any jackass behavior that will cause blow-back while the media is watching because of this event.
Go Team!
