On the Road with DCP - Published on June 29, 2017

On June 14-16, the DCP Communications Team, the Development Team and the Rinker School’s Dr. Raymond Issa traveled to South Florida to meet and film DCP alumni and attend the South Florida Rinker Alumni Fishing Tournament.

The interviews with Rinker alums from the Southern family, landscape architecture alum Mike Kroll and urban and regional planning alums Jerry Bell and Howard Nelson focused on tradition and legacy as well as career paths and advice for current and potential DCP students.
