"Class of 2011, Department of Mathematics."

You are not a part of any department unless you are a graduate student or professor.

You are just an undergraduate scrub that no one cares about. No one.

I hate the guy who started that email chain.

The pretensions of these kids astounds me.

The word you're looking for is "Institute."

It isn't carved in stone. It isn't cute, it isn't clever, and it makes this kid come off like a jackass.

Do these people realize that if they send an email with that signature to a company they want to work for, the hiring manager will think they can't spell? It's like saying "pants" to mean something completely different. I blame ESG. And the Media Lab.

Don't forget Random and ESP.

They're going to show up to an interview with ripped jeans, a squid shirt, and they will use the word "pants" to mean something it doesn't mean even in the slightest, and they will be laughed out of the building. Fired faster than Richard E. Hughes.
