    Hello from South Carolina

    Hello everyone!

    I'm from the Palmetto State of South Carolina, and I ran into this forum researching more information about a career in urban planning. I'm so glad I found it too! There's such a wealth of information on here! I have a B.S. in Marketing from Miami University and am currently obtaining my MBA. I really don't have a planning background, but I have become passionate about this field over the years, so I'm ready to learn more.

    Right now, I'm interested in researching planning schools, making some contributions as best as I can, and networking, too. Can't wait to see what else is in store here!

    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

    Welcome from the Hoosier State.

    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 Central Indiana. I grew up in SC and got my undergrad at Winthrop!

    Planning is a varied field, which many subfields. I am a municipal planner, a mix of enforcement, policy and long-term planning.
