Summer Reading – Part 2

On Monday I posted some resources for possible summer reading.  The resources revolved around faculty, alumni, and current student writings posted on the web.  I was riding my bike to work this morning and got the idea that it would be fun to do a similar thing for those joining us in the fall.  I know from reading applications that many admitted applicants have a web or digital presence that others might be interested in.

So the point of this entry is to solicit reading resources from recently admitted students.  This could also turn into a great way to get to know those you will be taking classes with in the fall.  Another way is to see pictures from those you will be joining and the summer photo series is also on the horizon so stay tuned for details.

If you Tweet, Blog, write for a web site or can be followed in some way on the web and wish to share links, Twitter names, etc. with fellow incoming students, we want to hear from you. If you are an incoming student that will be starting classes in September and want to give people the ability to read or follow you, send an email with the following to sipa_new@columbia.edu with the title – Summer Reading.

  • Your full name
  • Your degree program (MIA, MPA, or MPA-DP)
  • Any of the following – Twitter account, Blog address, links where you have been published, web sites you champion or support

The information you submit will be posted on this blog for public consumption.

Another avenue is of course Facebook (but Facebook cannot be accessed by everyone) and it is likely that a Facebook page has already been started by some incoming student.  If a Facebook page has indeed been created, someone please send us an email letting us know and I will post to the blog for easy consumption.  An email can be sent to sipa_new@columbia.edu with the title “Facebook” and you can include the group name for us to pass on.
