Where Were They This Summer?

One of the great things about beginning the fall semester is hearing all the stories our returning students have to tell about their summer adventures.
Last week the SAIS Observer, the SAIS student newspaper, ran an article titled, “Where Were They This Summer?” in which returning students were asked what they did over their summer, and new students were asked how they spent their last months pre-grad school.

Is The World Going To Hell?

I don’t know the question to that question, but these prospective SAIS students might:

This past Tuesday, over 40 prospective students joined up for a Taster Lecture with Eliot Cohen, SAIS Professor and Director of the Strategic Studies Program.

The evening began with Dr. Cohen’s lecture, titled, “Is the World Going To Hell?” and ended with a question-and-answer session with the popular SAIS professor.

If you missed Dr. Cohen’s lecture, you still have the opportunity to attend another taster lecture with another SAIS faculty member this semester. In October we will be featuring Camille Pecastaing, professor and Acting Director of Middle East Studies, and in November we will be featuring Peter Lewis, professor and Director of Africa Studies.
