"My honors thesis experience allowed me to research the physical, cultural, and political renovations that occurred to the urban geography of Paris in the nineteenth century. Drawing on my personal experience from studying abroad in Paris in college, I explored the first instances of the planned implementation and optimal locations of modern urban systems—such as paved roads, clean water, sewers, and municipal parks—and their importance to sustaining a growing metropolitan area. This thesis influenced me to pursue urban planning in graduate school." - Steven Simmerman
