As excited as I was to graduate from college, there was always a part of me that knew I would miss everything about school. The learning, the projects, the cute notebooks (that’s my continuing love of all things stationery right there). I am always drawn to the idea of going back for my masters in a field more closely related to what I’m doing now. But as a former structural engineer, I’m still a huge fan of anything construction (hence my DIY obsession). When I was approached about sharing the news of the New School of Architecture and Design, I was really excited because this school reflected the combination of my interests that always seemed so different from one another: Architecture/Construction AND Digital Arts.
New School of Architecture is the leading architecture, construction management, digital arts and design school located in San Diego, California. Through a balanced approach of art, science, theory, and practice, New School’s enriching programs have shaped it into the a prestigious design school it is today.
