102

The title of this entry has a dual meaning of sorts.  Yes, it’s been hot in NYC lately.  Temperatures have been reported as high as 102 or 103 (approximately 39 Celsius for most of the world).   NYC heat is interesting.  The city is mostly concrete, brick, pavement, and asphalt and all day long the sun shines down and these materials absorb the heat.  Then all night long they radiate the heat absorbed.  So it never really cools down.

I was also running some reports over the past few days, one of which focused on the country of citizenship of SIPA students for the last academic year.  Yes indeed, 102 countries were represented in our student body last year.  This also includes a number of Permanent Residents who did not have country listed on the report so the true number might be a bit higher.

This is one of the distinct advantages of attending SIPA.  No matter what you are studying, most likely there is someone in our student body who can chime in with a personal opinion – because they are from “there.”  Enjoy the list.
