Hi my name is mark and I am a senior at the University of South Florida in Tampa. My degree is in Geography, and I was just checking out sites and came across this one.
Ive always been interested in skyscrapers and cities as a young person, and the game simcity was nice also in the 5th grade :)
Why do I feel like im making a introduction at a AA meeting lol
Thats all I guess for now,
Mark

Welcome Geographer. That degree in geography will serve you well. My wife and I have six of them between us. BTW - we are far more messed up than an AA crowd here in Cyburbia land. Now you are one of us. ;)

Yay for Geography and welcome (I was only a minor in it though...). You'll have fun here.

Another geographer here. Don't mind Tranplanner, he's a Canadien. They may have a superiority complex, but they are harmless. Welcome.

Thanks you all, this is one nice forum.

Well right now I am in the process of getting some internships so I can get some experience with planning, there are some smaller cities around here maybe I can get with them just to see what its like.

No degree in Geography, but just about enough credit hours for a minor. I do have a BS in Wildlife Biology though.... How's that for something different.

Howdy. I have my B.A. in Geography from Uof Fla but did graduate work in Public Admin at USF; differing in time zones, however, I was introduced to Sim City in grad school in about 1988/89. Ouch!
And I'm still in FL.

Yay, another geography person. Although, mine is only a minor from FSU. I should have finished out the degree though, it is very useful.

I haven't taken a geography class since high school. I went the Political Science BA and Masters in Planning route.

Anyhow welcome aboard. I have a soft spot in my heart for the Tampa-St.Pete-Clearwater area. My Grandparents lived there for 25 years and I visted 2-3 times a year until they moved back to Indiana.

I totally agree. I just remember walking around downtown thinking "Where are all the cars?" and just 4 years later, going out and realizing what a cool little city it is.
