I am Eric from Santa Barbara, California. I just graduated UCSB with a BA in Political Science and currently work at the UCSB library as the manager to its off-campus facility as well as its copy services department. This is all well and good as I enjoy the work to a point. However, I am planning on getting an MUP and my MArch in 2010. It's going to take a lot of time, effort, and money, but I am very excited about it. I am going to be taking an architecture drafting class and a GIS class next semester at the local community college, SBCC. I look forward to getting exposure and insight into the world of Urban Planning! Any tips on how to get more experience would be greatly appreciated.
