"The best year of our lives"

SAIS scholars and alumni are our best ambassadors.

Little wonder then that students looking to embark on the SAIS journey want to hear from current students or those who have recently completed their studies. Enter the Communications Office, which makes sure prospective students can hear alumni and see their faces.

Case in point is the series "One Day at Hopkins SAIS Bologna". Like Antonio Vivaldi's "Four Seasons", there is a video clip for each season: Episode1: Winter featured alumna Chidiogo Akunyili and Episode 2: Spring focused on Mac Broderick.

Just released Episode 3: Summer presents Judit Vasarhelyi-Kondor from Hungary. Judit finished the first year of her MA studies in Bologna in May and is now on her way to DC for her final year.

A European Studies concentrator, Judit chose SAIS to pursue public policy-making. While in Bologna she worked at the Bologna Institute for Policy Research (BIPR) as a research assistant.

(Some of our readers may recognize Judit from our quiz last week.)

Other SAIS Bologna alumni appear in videos in the "Voices of the Bologna Center"series, which also offers text versions.

Below is Judit's video. Enjoy -- before the cold months of winter arrive.
