SUMMER 2014 Manhattan: texts, classrooms, ID’s, accessing Bobst

The start of the summer sessions is right around the corner which can only mean some good weather finally!

Below are the details you’ll need if you are attending classes in Manhattan, so please read on. Required texts and classroom assignments are below. Once again, we look forward to a great semester!

Students beginning at Palmer Manhattan for the first time should contact Alice Flynn to set up a time to take an ID picture, answer any questions, and give you some handouts. Just contact to set up an appointment.

Please read on for details you’ll need! And please be sure to familiarize yourself with the blog and its contents! You’ll find the answers to most questions here on the blog.
