First year MPA student James Reavis kept in touch with the friends he made during the Summer Intensive Language Program in Arabic at the Monterey Institute in 2006 by sending out regular email newsletters. Those newsletters became a cultural phenomenon during his time in law school and were recently published in a book by Carolina Academic Press.
