Dean's Message:
We often speak to the quality of our students and graduates, the attributes and knowledge we strive to imbue during the professional education here in the College of Architecture. This quality is recognized by a variety of design and research awards, and at all levels of competition.

None of this is possible without our outstanding faculty. Last week, the announcement of the top prize in Interior Design Innovative Education was awarded to Lindsey Bahe, and Nate Bicak was in the top five awards with an honorable mention. Congratulations to both on this fantastic honor and recognition.

This level of excellence permeates not only our full-time faculty, but our part-time faculty as well. Take a look at the video below featuring Architecture part-time faculty member Mark Bacon.

We experienced quite the extremes last week, from class cancellations due to blizzards on Monday…to 50 degrees and sunny skies on Friday. In between the extremes, I hope that your progress and studies have remained steady, focused, and are mapping towards meeting your goals.

Our program actively seeks opportunities for our students to get recognized for the great work they do in the classroom by finding avenues to submit their work for awards, scholarships, and even academic conference participation.
