Graduate student profiled by UT Arlington campus paper

May 4, 2011

In a May 1, 2011 article titled "Architecture graduate student is designing his future", UT Arlington Shorthorn writer Kevin Crouch profiled School of Architecture graduate student Christian Walker.

Crough wrote:

"Walker said he lost his interest for architecture during high school, hoping to take a more business-oriented career, but was later exposed to experienced architects while he worked in real estate sales. He met with several architects to see what the industry was like, and decided to pursue an architecture degree after finishing his undergraduate degree in political science and business in 2005 at UTA.

"After looking at schools like Princeton University, Rice University and UT-Austin, Walker decided that UTA was the best fit. He said he felt like the Metroplex was a good place to explore his potential, and was confident in the value of education at UTA."

Walker currently serves as the UT Arlington chapter president of the American Institutes of Architecture Students.  He will graduate on May 13 with a master's degree in architecture.
