We have 23 newly enrolled students and 72 current students, a total of 95 students enrolled in the Publishing programs.  Please feel free to contact me or any of our faculty and staff if we can assist you in any way.  


Please mark your calendar for the second Arthur A. Levine Lecture on April 10, 2013 from 6-8PM. Mr. Levine is serving for the 2012-2013 academic year as the David Pecker Distinguished Visiting Professor.  His lecture will take place at the Midtown Executive Club at 40 West 45th Street from 6-8PM.  Another important date for new students is Monday, February 4th 2013.  We will hold an Orientation from 5-6PM outside the Multimedia Lab on the 8th Floor at 551 Fifth Avenue.  An invitation for both events will be forthcoming.  Current students are welcome to attend the Orientation session, but new students should definitely put this date on their calendar. 


My very best to you for a productive semester.
