Starting in Level Design

Hello people. I’ in college studying game development and design, and I want to know how can I start in doing Level Design? Should I be an artist? should I know how to draw and 3D modelling. What are the skills and knowledge that I should have and what kind of exercises would you recommned on doing it for a Level Designer?

Thank you very much and I hope you could help me.

I too am in college studying game art and design. Want to team up and teach each other stuff? Im trying to make a game right now.

in what college are you?

One of the first things you can do is study level design in existing games. Load up a map offline for a multiplayer game, or a campaign title and just inspect everything. Best way to learn is to take apart and dissect professional work. Good luck. =)
