Djordje Takov

Djordje Takov BAUSP Candidate (4+1 program)

Hometown: Dimitrovgrad, Serbia

Where did you go for undergrad and what did you major in?

Bachelor of Urban Studies and Planning with concentrations in Social Justice and Policy and Planning

Why did you choose to attend DURP at UIUC?

The tightly knit community of planners that makes Department of Urban and Regional Planning offered me a narrowly tailored and personalized approach to education. Being a member of a small department within a large university enables me to be both a big fish in a little pond and a little fish in a big pond, preparing me better for all the future scenarios of my professional career.

What are your career ambitions?

Working for a planning department in a community that I am a member of and seeing my effort, work and experience project itself into improvements that better that community, solve problems and serve all of its' members.
