Dean's Message:
As we complete this semester, my best wishes for you to finish strong in your final exams and to enjoy a well-deserved semester break. To those graduating in less than a week, congratulations!

I was present for many of the reviews this past week and am proud of your work and the depth of your consideration, and your articulation of process and proposal. Well done.

My heartfelt warm wishes to you for the coming holiday and break.

TIPS FOR SUCCESS
ARCHITECTURE
After an exciting and energetic week of reviews, I want to wish you all the best as you finish out the semester with finals week and the projects, exams and papers that will conclude this fall’s semester. It has been a great one for the Architecture program as evidenced by the work we have seen displayed around the college.
 
Enjoy your break – sleep, eat, travel safely, and have the happiest of holidays! See you in 2018!
-Sharon Kuska
INTERIOR DESIGN
We made it! The last week of fall 2017 has arrived (and so has the cold weather). Thanks to all, students, staff and faculty, for the hard work, patience and support for a successful critique week. It was with great pride that I got to be part of second, third and fourth year Collaborate studio reviews. As the work was pinned up and I was able to hear you present your design intentions to various juries, I saw all your hard work pay off and manifest themselves into bold, confident and innovative solutions that challenge norms and aim to make the places and spaces we live in the best they can be. I find that the end of semester studio reviews are a great opportunity to take a minute and reflect, acknowledge and appreciate all the growth that has occurred over the course of 16 weeks…and of course set goals and objectives to build upon in the upcoming spring semester.

From all of us in the Interior Design program, we wish all of you a wonderful break and a happy new year! - Lindsey Bahe
COMMUNITY AND REGIONAL PLANNING
As end-of-semester stress mounted, several Community and Regional Planning students gathered following a recent meeting of the Student Planning Association of Nebraska (SPAN) to release some of the tension by enjoying pizza and playing a couple of board games.

With the end of the semester now in sight, the planning students and faculty wish everyone a relaxing winter break and a joyous holiday season!
-Gordon Scholz
LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE
Congratulations to all those students and faculty who participated in final reviews last week. And we wish the best to Professor De Almeida’s third year design studio as they make their final trip to Gering to present eight innovative designs for a park to the city council. To everyone, safe travels and happy holidays.  -Kim L. Wilson
