New SIPA Student (photo/story) Series 2014

Summer officially begins this weekend but school is out and for most, summer is already here with lazy days and mild summer temperatures.

If you are a follower of the SIPA Admissions Blog, you will know that each summer we run a series of new students’ photos.  Last year we included stories about their summer adventure prior to beginning classes at SIPA in the fall.  Blog readers have informed us that they like seeing/reading what our students are up to each summer.  Well, it’s that time of year again when we make a request for submissions.

All you NEW SIPA STUDENTS, we encourage you to submit pictures (travel photos, artistic photos, event photos) to post and share on the Blog.  If you would rather provide a short post about what you are doing this summer before enrolling at SIPA, we’ll be happy to share that too.  We typically post 3 photos per student so the maximum number to send along for consideration should be no more than four.  If you are sending a story about your summer activities, please limit it to five paragraphs.

To participate, simply send along your photos or story as attachments to this address: sipa_new@columbia.edu.  Please include the subject: 2014 Blog submission.   We will try to post everyone’s submission but it may take a few weeks/months (depending on how many people are willing to share their experience) for us to share all of them this summer.

If you plan to submit (and experience at least 24-hours of fame), please include the following when submitting your pictures/story:

  • Your Name
  • Your Degree Program (MIA, MPA, MPA-DP)
  • Where the photo was taken (if submitting a photo)
  • A brief description of the photo (if submitting a photo)

Looking forward to receiving your submissions.

 

NEW Student Photo (Story) Series – 2013

Throughout the year we post tips and stories from our SIPA students and alumni but at the beginning of each summer we like to feature our incoming new students.  For the past few years we have encouraged new students to submit pictures (travel photos, artistic photos, event photos, photos of you) for publishing on the blog and it has been a great success.  We wish to continue this tradition but also wish to propose another opportunity for you to be published our Blog.  This year you may share photos or a brief post about what you are doing this summer before enrolling at SIPA.

We typically post 2-3 photos per student so the maximum number to send along for consideration should be no more than five.  If you are sending a story of your summer adventure (or summer of Zen), please keep it short and no more than four paragraphs.

To participate, simply send along your photos or story as attachments to this address: sipa_new@columbia.edu.   We will try to post everyone’s submission but it may take a while for us to get to all of them so we appreciate your patience.

Please include the following when submitted your pictures:

  • Your Name
  • Your Degree Program (MIA, MPA, MPA-DP)
  • Where the photo was taken
  • A brief description of the photo
