New Student Photo Series 2013 – Post 1

The Annual New Student Summer Photo series is 5 years old.

Last week we posted a request to all you dedicated readers; looking for photos and/or summer exploit posts from the incoming SIPA student population.  We have a few submissions but are always looking for more.  So if you are interested in sharing, please email them to us at: along with some basic information about you.  Our goal is to showcase one or two students’ photographs (or story) at least once a week during the summer.

In the meantime, we congratulate Chelsea Rudman for being selected as our first Summer Series post… and of course for being admitted to the MIA program at SIPA —  Class of 2015.
