Greetings from NYC, the city that can’t figure out what season it is.  Last week it was in the 80s.  Then it rained.  Felt like a windy, nippy, Autumn day today.  I wonder what tomorrow will bring…

The big news on the EAP front is that the application deadline for this course has been extended until May 15th.  So, for those of you who haven’t finished filling out those applications, you’ve still got a little over 2 weeks to wrap them up.  If you’re still on the fence about it, this gives you time to decide that you reeeeally want to come along on what will surely be a grand and exciting and educational trip!  If you’ve got any questions about the course, feel free to contact the Faculty leader- Professor Vivian-Lee Nyitray.

I’ve got some more preview photos from Washington, D.C. from some of the sites we’ll be visiting while we’re there:

This is the Newseum.  Can you read what’s written in stone on the front facade of the building?  Something we’ll be dealing with a LOT during our Washington, D.C. studies.  The Newseum is primarily a journalism and media museum (hence “News”eum), but there are also galleries entirely dedicated to 1st Amendment freedoms as well, which is where we’ll be primarily be hanging out.

And right down the street from the Newseum are the National Archives, which we’ll visit to take a look at some of the most important documents in American history like the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, etc…

So with that, make sure to finish up your applications and make sure to pack your umbrella, because we’re heading to D.C.!
