Dean's Message

Welcome to those of you who are new to Architecture Hall and welcome back to our returning students! There are many opportunities within the college to be involved and engaged, including attending exceptional speakers and guests events, serving on the Student Advisory Council, or becoming a member in one of our many student organizations. We are eager to begin the new year with you, have high expectations for your learning and engagement and have developed resources just for you.
From the first day of classes until the end of the semester, I encourage you to develop and practice excellent habits that will enhance your learning and effectiveness. Reduce distraction and increase focus. Stay healthy. Advantage yourself of the opportunities afforded throughout the year, by saying "yes" to them and being involved. Each of our professions have such high potential to affect people's lives for the better, and through acquiring knowledge and developing wisdom in application, you  will  make a difference!

We are welcoming a new class of 27 second year interior design students this fall. I urge the third and fourth year interior design students to welcome and help mentor them in their transition from a pre-design student to an official professional interior design student. As you know, the fall semester ramps up experiences in discipline specific knowledge relative to history/theory, structural fundamentals, materiality and of course studio interior design fundamentals.
