Viva Doc Sept 24 Meeting Recap

We had a great kickoff meeting this semester on Wednesday September 24th in the Doc Center suite on the 4th floor of the 1104 S. Wabash film building. Over 21 people showed up, and Viva Doc alum Suree Towfighnia (the Colum grad who made PBS’ Standing Silent Nation) stopped by to say it was probably the biggest Viva Doc meeting ever.

We had a great meet and greet session with members talking about why they joined, the future of the doc program at Columbia, and what they’d like to get out of Viva Doc. Several possible exciting opportunities were discussed, and more will be discussed at the next meeting. Viva Doc will be what we make it, so we’re pretty confident we’re off to a great start.

Although the Doc suite was a bit crammed with everybody in there and near the end of the meeting it was standing room only as more people trickled in, pretty soon we’ll have more chairs and a conference table.

Our next meeting will be at 5PM, Wednesday the 1st of October in the Doc Center.
