In ancient times, man was nomadic, moving from place to place, hunting and gathering in order to survive. In the 21st Century man is more mobile than ever, and today he travels the world, hunting and gathering knowledge. The College of Architecture is proud to offer students many opportunities to travel the world and gather life experiences that will make them better citizens of the world.
David Baker, who earned a Bachelor of Environmental Design degree in 1983, said with the globalization of the economy it's becoming more important for students to get the broad perspective a study abroad experience provides.
Baker, a principal with the Houston-based Wilson Architectural Group, spoke with radio host Dave South prior to the Nov. 6 Aggie football victory over Oklahoma.
He said study abroad was a terrific experience that widened his perspective.
"Not just about architecture but about different cultures and the way different people think, which I have found has served me very well in my professional practice," said Baker, adding that in addition to his work taking him of the country, he has worked with multinational firms doing business in the U.S.
