A note from students Rubina Madan and Aaron Cahall.
Joining online student groups
You may have heard of the J-school’s online student groups, but have no idea how to get involved. These are different ways for us to say connected without relying on the official deans-run mailing list, which comes to us automatically with [j_school] in the subject line.
These web-based communities are one of our primary ways of planning Happy Hours, movie screenings and impromptu get-togethers. Besides their social benefits, they will be a valuable networking resource after we graduate. So if you’re one of the more than 80 students who haven’t signed up, here’s some information about the various groups. After you join, please bookmark the sites and check them frequently to keep up with student events and news.
Jschool07: Informal class Yahoo group, run by Aaron Cahall (M.S. Class of 2007). To sign up, send an e-mail to email@example.com or go to http://groups.yahoo.com/group/jschool07/ and click on “Join This Group”
Aaron’s e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
“The Ten Month Beat”: Informal Facebook.com community for the M.S. Class of 2007 (and part-time Class of 2008), run by Rubina Madan. To sign up, join the Columbia Facebook network at http://www.thefacebook.com. Then visit the community at http://columbia.facebook.com/group.php?gid=2204425495. You can use the group to introduce yourself, browse other students’ profiles and post on the discussion board.

J-SCHOOL CLASS BLOG
“The Tabloid”: The 2007 class blog is a place for all of us to comment on the grad school experience, announce social events, and post and read articles. Check it out at http://the-tabloid.blogspot.com. To make it successful, we need as many students as possible to become members and participate in updating it. Don’t worry — there’s no pressure to post. It’s very informal. If you’d like to be added, please e-mail David Ressel at dlr2113[at]columbia.edu or Rubina Madan at rm2507[at]columbia.edu
