No Kindle For You

If you were hoping to get a Kindle for free from the University, it appears that your best bet was to be a graduate student and or studying in the Woodrow Wilson School. The University has released the names of the three classes participating in the pilot program. The winners, the Woodrow Wilson School/American Studies undergraduate course "Civil Society and Public Policy" taught by Stanley Katz, the Woodrow Wilson School graduate course "U.S. Policy and Diplomacy in the Middle East" taught by Daniel Kurtzer and the Classics graduate course "Religion and Magic in Ancient Rome" taught by Harriet Flower.

The Kindle program is sponsored by the University Library and the Office of Information Technology (OIT) and funded by the High Meadows Foundation. It aims to help reduce paper usage on campus.
