A degree in Architecture...

I am currently pursuing a degree in Architecture. One of my goals is to someday become a game designer. (I know, common goal, right? =P)

So I'm just wondering... Since having a degree is a good idea and Architecture deals with design... Could it work?

Maybe pursuing a degree in Game Design would have been the better choice, but I would like to have some flexibility with my degree, just in case GD doesn't work out.

Also, do you have any tips for what I can do while I am in school? Any good ways of getting experience?

Thank you!

3. Sure, that's fine.
