    Favorite cities to study in

    What has been your favorite city to study in...or where do you hope to study based on city and geographical location, and why? (Choosing from the lists of accredited programs.)

    Promote your city people!

    The University of Colorado at Denver.

    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)

    I'll second that!

    The University of Colorado at Denver and Health Sciences Center for sure!

    I use the full official name mostly to bug JNA....he he he.....

    Denver is a great place to go to school though........

    Others:

    Anywhere in Virginia
    Anywhere in New England
    Anywhere in Western Canada Alberta and BC
    Tucson- U. of Arizona (Brocktoon is going to KILL me)
    Phoenix- ASU: I think the downtown has a lot of potential and that's where the new campus is located
    Northern California

    I studied in London a couple years ago and it was highly inspirational. I feel like there's something for just about everyone there. I was lucky in that it didn't rain much in 2006 though.

    Minneapolis/St. Paul was a nice combination of urban, cheap, and different for me (coming from New England). I loved having the university right near downtown as well. And lots of coffee shops for "studying."

    I would love to study there. Actually, I did an independent study in Portland as an undergrad...very cool place! I highly recommend it. Does Portland State have a Ph.D. program in planning?

    They do.. I loved Portland, and thought pretty highly of the school in general - the people, though, I was less impressed with, and by the end of my degree I just wanted to get away from all of the ultra-militant extremist socialist ecoterrorists and such - and i'm reasonably moderate.

    Las Vegas....oh, do you mean really Study? or just study?

    Why? All work and no play makes jack a dull planner. Just don't go outside during daylight hours between May and September or your shoes will stick to the sidewalk...

    Stockholm--they built a city on 20-some separate islands, how can you NOT appreciate that?

    As an American, it also has a little bit of the wet-dream factor. Of course it is the people that enable the urban style which pretty much every American city would shoot down in flames.

    Edit: KTH isn't an AICP accredited program (duh)--I was studying Env. Engineering with an emphasis on built envt. there, for clarification.
    What luck! A random assemblage of words never sounded less intelligent.

    look up north eh?

    I won't pretend to be objective here but Toronto and Montreal are great places for students--highly regarded program, loads of amenities, great cultural scene, not to mention cost of living wise they are in the bargain pit of cities (well, presuming the loonie takes a plunge)

    Now if only Canadian schools can do something about their attitude problem...
