Dear Prospective Participant,

Hello! We would like to invite you to this year's Student National Dental Association's (SNDA) Spring Impressions Program to be held at the Columbia University College of Dental Medicine.  This unique opportunity offers a fun and interactive day with current dental students as well as two incredible dental faculty members- a professor of prosthodontics (Dr. Candace Zemnick) and a member of the Admissions Committee (Dr. Albert Thompson).  If you are interested in exploring the field of dentistry and/or learning how to apply to dental school, then the Impressions Program is perfect for you!  

Participants will be given the opportunity to use dental instruments and materials in a lab setting-- this is a very hands-on, fun, and interactive learning experience! Participants will also be able to hear about the lives of current dental students, learn about the application and interview processes, and ask any questions about dentistry and dental school to a large. We will also have the Army and the Navy present on scholarship opportunities during and after dental school, and Kaplan will be giving a short lecture on DAT Sample questions. Please join us for this fun-filled day! We will even be raffling off prizes including a free Kaplan prep course!

This year, the program will be held on Saturday, April 1st at Columbia University Medical Center from the hours of 8:30 to 3:00PM.  We will meet in A7 on the 7th floor of the P&S Building— you may enter the school in the Black Building at 650 West 168th Street (there will be signs).

WHEN: Tue March 7th @ 5pm
WHERE: 202 Altschul

See email below from Dean Runsdorf (Junior Class Dean)

Dear Students,

Do you have an interest in one day pursuing graduate study at Oxford University with the full financial support of a Rhodes Scholarship?  The great majority of you will become eligible to apply for this prestigious award when you become seniors, but we want you to begin thinking and planning ahead.   To learn more about the Rhodes Scholarship—what makes a good candidate, how to apply, the benefits offered to recipients—I strongly encourage you to attend a special information session that will be held from 5-6pm on Tuesday, March 7, in 202 Altschul.   We are very fortunate that three former Rhodes Scholars, including Barnard’s own Professor Jim Basker, will be on hand to discuss their experiences at Oxford and to answer your questions.

If you are unable to attend but would like to know more about the Rhodes Scholarship, please feel free to schedule an appointment with me: 

For additional information,

I look forward to seeing you there!

Best wishes,

Dean Runsdorf
