Building Bridges in Panama

Imagine having to wade through a river up to your waist every day to get to school. Imagine having to walk an extra mile just to reach a safer crossing point. This was the reality for the residents of Rio Grande, a small village in Panama. This summer I had the incredible opportunity to help build a 47-m suspension footbridge for this rural community.

Reunion: self-exposure

SURP class of '81

We dash through life, our eyes fixed intently on a busy present and the promises of the future.  Days of sameness and moments of revelation stream by until we hit a milestone.  A transitional birthday, the death of a loved one, an invitation to a class reunion might make us stop, take a deep breath and glance back over our shoulders to take stock of our journey. 

SURP Class of 1983

I remember the day I approached my first Plan 100 class: "Introduction to Planning". I was 18 years old, away from home for the first time and anxious to meet the Urban & Regional Planning classmates with whom I'd be spending the next four years. I took a seat in the back row. Introductions were made. Smiles exchanged. Connections established.
