Facebook Live Friday Series

I just wanted to take a moment to remind you of a new online resource available to all prospective students and applicants. We’re trying something new this year, dubbed Facebook Live Friday, where I’LL chat with a member of the SIPA community to discuss the facets of the program, student life, and beyond.

Here’s a list of past and upcoming information sessions I’m hosting this year. Make sure you RSVP so you’ll get a reminder about the events.

To come back to the schedule, just look at the right-hand side of the admissions blog, which links you to the Recruitment Calendar, where we list all of the upcoming sessions.

Summer 2016 information session schedule

Summer officially begins today in the United States, and to kick things off I wanted to remind our eager applicants that SIPA’s Office of Admissions & Financial Aid is still open for business. So stop by from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Monday – Friday, excluding holidays, to speak with an admissions or financial aid staff member. (Don’t feel pressured to make an appointment as we only accept walk-ins.)

If you’d like to learn more about our two-year degree programs and how to prepare your application, I encourage you to sign up for an upcoming information session. Here’s the schedule:

Learn about SIPA this summer

Right now, it’s prime weather for walking along the waterfront off Riverside Drive to your favorite bistro before heading across town with your friends for an afternoon at one of the dozens of museums in the city. And the sun warms the sidewalks just enough for your eyes to catch a glimpse of that heat-haze coming off the pavement. Hence, it’s clearly summertime in NYC.  Read More →

Can’t make it to campus, find us on the road

We’re visiting a few places this week so if you can’t make it to Columbia University in Morningside Heights, NYC then find us off campus.

Tonight (Monday, September 15) we’re heading south to midtown east (not that far away but for those who are already working, playing or living in the area, it’s just a faster and easier commute).  We’re participating in an admissions fair with a number of APSIA schools so you can meet a few of us in one evening.  And if international affairs is your kind of thing, you can also participate in a panel discussion with CFR experts discussing the New Middle East.  To register for the event, click here.  There is a small fee to attend the panel discussion but the fair is free (use “APSIA” as the promo code).

This week we’ll also be in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Mexico, and the US capital (Washington, DC).  For a list of where you can find us to learn more about SIPA, visit our website, under “On the Road.”  If you’re in New York and able to visit our lovely campus, come and attend an information session.

 

"The most global public policy school, where an international community of students and faculty address world challenges."
