    G'day from Australia

    heya

    I'm currently working in town planning (worked through from DA to where I am in strategic planning now) for gov't. I'm keen to continue my studies and am looking into some kind of Environmental Management Masters that I can complete while I continue working (& maybe get a bit of financial support from work for the studies! *fingers crossed*)

    The International Urban & Environmental Management Masters at RMIT looks really appealling.. I'll hopefully be asking some Qs here about Aussie distance & part time Masters courses.

    Hmm.. not really sure what else to add, other than i'm looking forward to checking out more of the forum & maybe hearing back from some peeps!

    cheers!

    Greetings from the Hoosier State, hard by the Ohio River, below the world famous falls.

    Thanks for registering and feel free to jump in (the forums not the river: it's a bit low right now and there's scary things down there at the bottom....)

    Another welcome from the Hoosier State, along the Ohio River, just further downstream or west in that other time zone.

    Welcome from the Great State of Ohio. I visited Melbourne (stayed around Balwyn/Mont Albert area mostly) in 2003 and loved every minute of it. I was going to take a study abroad at RMIT, the school seems amazing.

    Enjoy the board and realize that you are lucky you live where you do!!

    thanks you guys (& gals?)!!!

    I will no doubt be diving head first into the forums, thanks Gedunker!

    RMIT is indeed a pretty great place, it would have been one of my first choices for uni originally, but i decided to stay closer to home for family reasons..

    I love it here.. i've had (& still have) opportunity to move elsewhere, but i really do love it here, compared with the other countries i've lived in.. not to say that i wouldn't consider moving OS again sometime.. but yeh.. australia is where i hang my hat for now.

    thanks again for the warm welcome

    Hello, from Dallas, TX!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011
