What brought you to Urban Studies?: 

Urban Studies is a combination of everything I was looking for in a major- public policy/government, architecture, design, and discussion of societal issues with a historical context. My favorite thing about Urban Studies is how it teaches you to translate theories into practice - whether that be through site visits, community service, internships or class walking tours
