    Alma Maters

    Where did you get your undergrad/graduate degree(s)? What was your degree in? Since it is impossible to poll by listing every possible planning/Cyburbia-dealing school-and Cyburbia related majors, I will leave it open-ended for you to fill out yourself. I am curious as to who went to school near each other (and possible Cyburbanites who went to school together.


    Myself, a 1999 grad of Tri-State University (in Angola, IN) with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering.

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"

    Aww! A friend of mine from grad school (his name is Seamus) went to Geneseo, I think also in Geography. We were both Grad Assistants at EMU.
