    Greetings from Long Beach

    Hello.
    My name is Mark Hungerford and I am a graduating senior at Cal State - Long Beach. I am a geography major/journalism minor. My interests lie in all things urban - particularly urban planning.
    I am in the process of applying to grad schools for the coming fall semester. Thus far my focus has been on the departments at San Diego State University and the University at Buffalo. I take the GRE next Saturday.
    This website (cyburbia.org) appears at the end of a chapter in my urban geography textbook. Though I have only briefly sifted through the contents of this site, I really like what I see and hope to use it to further stimulate my interests in the field.

    Welcome from the northshore of the Ohio River at MileMarker 792.5.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Welcome from Chicagoland!
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    RichmondJake - I like the Giants chances in the West this season, but beyond 2005 they are staring at some major hurdles, namely the issue of inexperience. Gotta love the Benitez signing though - Herges alone cost you guys six or seven games last year.

    I like the Giants' chances, too. Since you're down near Chavez Latrine, you will like this site, just like sisterceleste does (it's on the top of her bookmarks).

    Thus far my focus has been on the departments at San Diego State University and the University at Buffalo. QUOTE]

    Welcome CMH from the lands between San Diego and Buffalo. What brought you to consider these two schools? Has that little Buffalo logo on the Cyburbia forum been calling out to your subconcious? Best of luck on your GRE.

    What the hell is acadamia coming to? When cyburbia cited in a textbook, I really have to wonder what they are teaching. Perhaps the textbook was published in connection with the University of Buffalo, which I believe is the birthplace of said website.

    Greetings Fellow Long Beacher!

    I also graduated from CSULB Geography Department, alas, way back in 1988, with my MA in Geography in 1999. It would be interesting to compare notes - send me a private message and we'll chat!
