New SIPA Student Photo Series #3

As an entrepreneur and consultant, Jean Suhas has traveled across Europe, South America, North America, Asia, North Africa, and Sub-Saharan Africa.

But what he encountered in Hanoi, Vietnam was worthy of a photo submission.  You don’t see one of these every day.

Jean is an incoming Master of International Affairs candidate.

The Main Walk

Each day as I exit and enter our building on my bike commute to and from work I pass the “main walk.”  This is a pedestrian pathway through the central part of the University – what would be 116th street.  The path always seems to be filled with pedestrians no matter the time of day and this time of year it is illuminated with lights.

Lenny Pridatko is a current SIPA student that takes a great interest in photography.  He shared the following photograph with our office.  It has not snowed a great deal this year, but this photo from last year captures the essence of a snowy night.

I have spent the last few days submitting an application of my own to SIPA so I know exactly what you as an applicant are seeing as you submit the application.  I will be using my research to put together an entry that explains how you can track your application and what you will see on our site as we process your application.  As the days pass I will also provide updates on what is going on in our office and I will continue to answer common questions so stay tuned.

New Student Photo Entry #10

The following photo comes from Daniel Perdormo, an incoming MPA student.

“Prints of Nature”
Merzouga, Morocco. 2007

Behind these nice prints by the wind, other prints by climate change are not so nice… Maghreb countries have experienced droughts which have been increasing during the last decades.


The following two photos come from Chelsea Kinsman, incoming MIA student.

The first picture is taken in the Islamic section of Jerusalem.  I like the contrast between the vibrancy of the Dome of the Rock Mosque and the more subdued colors of the buildings below.


The second picture was my first glimpse of the Treasury at Petra, an ancient city in southern Jordan. It was a welcome sight after following the Siq, a narrow gorge, for approximately one mile to reach it.


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