About the Author
Tim is a fifth-year undergraduate architecture student in the College of Architecture, Art, and Planning at Cornell University. He began blogging for “Life on the Hill” in Fall 2008 while studying abroad in Italy at the Cornell in Rome program. During the Fall of 2009, he participated in the “AAP in NYC” program — an urban semester that enables architecture students to live and study in the heart of Manhattan. He has since returned to Ithaca where he will be working intensely on his thesis throughout the Spring semester. Barring any serious disasters or lapses of judgement, Tim expects to graduate at the end of May 2010.
