Distance Syracuse Alumni,
Remember Boot Camp?
We are proud to announce that 2013 marks 20 years in online and distance education for the School of Information Studies at Syracuse University! To celebrate we would like to welcome back our alumni for celebratory events and free professional development seminars. It is a great way to share memories with fellow students, faculty and staff, while learning about new developments in the information arena.
The festivities will kick off on Friday, July 19th with a Barbecue on the Syracuse University Quad with our new incoming distance students, faculty, staff and all of our families. You can reminisce with your fellow alumni and share stories with the current incoming distance students, as well as catch up with faculty and staff.
On Saturday, we have set up a day of short professional development seminars, and a final program led by our own Dave Lankes, and ALA President Barbara Stripling.
