This week Cornell student, Nicole Barel, received an offensive email from a Cornell alumni posing as a Cornell professor.

Earlier this week Cornell freshman Nicole Barel emailed her professor to request an excused absence in order to observe the Jewish Holiday Rosh Hashanah. Unknown to Barel, she accidently added one more characteristic to her professor's email and the email was sent to Cornell Alumni Brian Mick. Mick caused wide spread controversy as he replied posing as Professor Bruce Mongers with an email that included offensive lines like, ““If you cannot come to the realization that higher learning is more important than ancient traditions, I suggest you move to Palestine and try to grow crops in the desert, your promised holy land”. Because the alumni is no longer affiliated with the University, there is little administration can do to react. Judicial administrator Mary Beth Grant stated, “The campus Code of Conduct … does not cover alleged misconduct by people who have already graduated.”
