EXCLUSIVE!  BREAKING NEWS!  
I HATE TO SOUND PRESUMPTUOUS, BUT I AM PRETTY CERTAIN I AM THE FIRST PERSON BREAKING THIS ALMOST-STORY PUBLICLY!  I WOULD CONSIDER THIS SLEAZY JOURNALISM, BUT LIBERA ADDS EVERYBODY ON FACEBOOK, WHICH SEEMS TO IMPLY THAT SHE USES IT AS AN OFFICIAL WEBSITE OF SORTS.
NOW, THE PICTURE IS SELF-EXPLANATORY, BUT LET’S GET A LITTLE BIT OF BACKSTORY HERE AS I FIELD IMAGINARY QUESTIONS…
"WHO IS ANNE LIBERA?"
ORIGINALLY FROM SAINT PAUL, MINNESOTA, LIBERA STUDIED THEATRE AT NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY.  SHE HAS BEEN DIRECTOR OF COMEDY STUDIES AT THE SECOND CITY SINCE 1987.
“‘THE SECOND CITY’?”
IF YOU HAVEN’T HEARD OF THE SECOND CITY, PLEASE VISIT THEIR WEBSITE.  THEY DESCRIBE THEMSELVES AS “THE WORLD’S PREMIER COMEDY CLUB/THEATRE AND SCHOOL OF IMPROVISATION” WITHOUT EVEN SOUNDING THE SLIGHTEST BIT COCKY, WHICH TAKES MAJOR ETHOS!  THEIR ALUMNI INCLUDES JUST ABOUT EVERYBODY, EXCEPT FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE, BUT A VERY SIGNIFICANT NUMBER OF COMEDIANS NONETHELESS A LOT OF VERY FAMOUS FUNNY PEOPLE LIKE EUGENE LEVY AND STEVE CARELL AND, OI, I COULD BE HERE ALL DAY WEEK MONTH YEAR CENTURY MILLENNIUM AD INFINITUM.  
"WAIT, THE COLUMBIA COLLEGE?”
NO!  THE OTHER COLUMBIA COLLEGE!  THIS ONE IS IN CHICAGO, WHICH MAKES IT DIFFERENT.  NOTABLE ALMOST-ALUMNI INCLUDE VINNY DEGAETANO AND HIS BUDDY AARON, YOUTUBE STARS (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iXp2ruZoxK8) WHO DROPPED OUT A WHILE AGO!
"SO WHAT DOES ALL OF THIS MEAN?"
ISN’T IT OBVIOUS?  COLUMBIA COLLEGE OF CHICAGO IS ABOUT TO HAVE A REALLY COOL PROGRAM ON ITS HANDS — THE FIRST OF ITS KIND IN THE U.S.A. — PROVIDED THE COLLEGE COMMITTEE DOES NOT TURN DOWN THIS FABULOUS OPPORTUNITY!  HOPEFULLY EVERYTHING WORKS OUT.   
MAYBE WE WILL BE HEARING FROM COMEDIANS HOLDING THIS PARTICULAR COLUMBIA COLLEGE DEGREE IN THE FUTURE!
