On Sunday, December 8, 2019, MPA students from the ICMA and PAA student chapters served over 1,900 meals at the St. Anthony Foundation's dining room in San Francisco. For the second year in a row, MPA student have come together to give back to the San Francisco community during the holiday season. ICMA and PAA hope to make this service event a semesterly tradition in years to come.
PAA hosted a holiday social on December 12th, 2019 that included current MPA students, incoming students, and faculty members. The MPA community had a chance to mingle, network, and celebrate the end of the semester. The new student orientation for incoming Spring 2020 students was held in conjunction with the holiday social, which was a great opportunity for students to get to know the incoming class, answer questions, and celebrate the holiday season!
