ARCHITECTURE
Welcome to the 2017-2018 academic year! It is a season of fresh beginnings, full of new opportunities and exciting challenges. We hope you have a positive approach from day one as you are taking those steps to get you closer and closer to reaching your goals (and graduation).

As those steps take you into Architecture Hall this fall, you will see some new faces and hear some new voices. In the Architecture program, we welcome two new tenure-track assistant professors: Ellen Donnelly and David Newton. They will be playing an active role teaching in the third and fourth year studios while expanding their research, scholarship and creative activities through their lecture and seminar courses.
LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE
Welcome back Landscape Architecture program students and faculty! It is with great anticipation that I look out across this academic year. Faculty have been working diligently on developing course content, interesting project briefs, as well as field trips and jurors. Guest lectures and graphic workshops have been planned and designed to enhance the program’s teaching and learning activities. And the UNL – ASLA Student Chapter is actively planning a fundraiser, kayak trip and participation in the Great Plains – ASLA Conference. We are planning internships, education abroad, UCARE, independent studies and so much more. I expect we all will learn and grow lots this year. Have a wonderful and productive semester.
