Dean's Message
I hope you were as inspired and energized by Majora Carter's visit as I was! Her visit was a reminder of the power each of us hold to affect environmental justice. Each of the disciplines in this College is preparing you with the knowledge to improve peoples' lives through the environments we all inhabit. It is in your hands to use that knowledge and make a difference.

Join us at noon on Wednesday (beginning in the Link) for a bit of information and a lot of ice cream, as well as an opportunity to mingle and learn more about the student organizations in the College. I challenge you to join at least one of the organizations and give it a try for the year - and make a difference!


TODAY, Monday, August 27 th is the LAST DAY to make adjustments to your fall class schedule and receive 100 percent tuition back.
FRESHMEN: Have you met with your peer mentor yet? All of our first year peer mentors are available to our new freshmen to answer questions you may have about the college. Do you want to go to the Ice Cream Social with a group – contact your peer mentor! Do you need help downloading your computer software – contact your peer mentor! Want to find out more about our Hyde Lectures – contact your mentor! If you don’t know who your mentor is, come and see Leslie in 232 Arch West!  
If you missed Majora Carter's Lunch and Learn, here's a video clip she showed during her presentation.
We are in the process of evolving our website and are looking at redesigning some pages as well as adding new resources. Therefore we encourage you, as users, to become a part of the process and welcome your feedback by participating in the survey below. This survey is short so it shouldn’t take much time to complete. Please complete by this Monday, August 27th! As always, thank you for your time!
Over the summer we’ve added a student resource page where you can find information that hopefully will make your life easier here at the College of Architecture. On this page you’ll find technology, career, financial aid and student policy information to name just a few items. Take a moment to review its contents this week.

The First week of Fall 2018 is complete! I hope you have all settled back into the “student life routine.” It was great to have the building buzzing with the energy and life that all of you students bring.

We have a lot of great projects in the Interior Design Program that are underway in our studio sequence. Second-year students have hit the ground running and are doing rigorous exercises in the orthographic representation and analysis of interior built environment precedents. More-
A major perk of being a program director is meeting students. This week I met some amazing individuals, like Ezra Young, president of the National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA); Jiaqi (Max) Luo, an international undergraduate student from Zhejiang University City College in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province, China; and the M.Arch thesis students. Speaking with them about their future goals and aspirations has been an inspiring experience, and reminded me that the education of an architect is full of exciting possibilities. More-
What did you do this past summer?
As we reconnect with our classmates and colleagues on campus each fall semester, we are sometimes amazed to learn about the interesting times that our friends have experienced over the summer months.
For example our second-year Master of Community and Regional Planning (MCRP) student had an interesting summer experience. Taylor Cook came to the MCRP degree program with a Bachelor of Arts degree in geography from UNL, with minors in political science and community and regional planning.  More-
It is official. This week we received the official notification from the Landscape Architecture Accreditation Board that the Landscape Architecture Program has received a full six year reaccreditation. We also received a clean sheet with no “‘recommendations affecting accreditation”. This is a strong acknowledgement that our program is on firm ground and doing all the things that are expected from a program designed to educate future landscape architects. Everyone associated with this effort, faculty, students and alumni, should feel a great deal of satisfaction from this result. More-
