Dean's Message:
I have had several opportunities recently with alumni to highlight the incredible activities and accomplishments of our faculty and students in the college. The quality of process, investigation and exploration at all levels of each curriculum shows fruit through job offers, competitions and awards, as well as the general confidence and attitudes you each take forward. None of this happens as singular actions, but through the combined discourse and learning in an environment of respect and collegiality. We each push each other to higher levels, and high expectations are integral. Each of the disciplines in the college carry a responsibility for knowledge and integration of that knowledge into solutions for people. Solutions that are bedded in responsibility to the environment, to human health and wellness, to “aesthetic delight”, safety and to each of the other impacts of the designed and built environment we affect (which is, “ from hand to land ”). The joy and satisfaction emanating from such endeavors, when accomplished at high levels, is tremendous. As you push toward the end of the semester, please remember the noble pursuit you are on – improving the human and environmental condition! 
Last Day to Withdraw From a Course

The Advising Staff would like to remind faculty and students that the last day to WITHDRAW from one or more full semester courses for spring 2018 is Friday, April 6 th.

Listed below are a few things you should know about “withdrawing” from a course:

·NEVER withdraw from a course without checking with your adviser first.

·Be sure to discuss with Scholarships and Financial Aid the impact withdrawing will have on your scholarships and aid packages.

·Be sure to discuss with University Housing how withdrawing may impact your housing eligibility.

·If your full-time or part-time enrollment is verified to receive discounts on your medical/car insurance or your parents’ health and auto insurance, withdrawing from classes may affect your eligibility for continued discounts.

If you have questions about withdrawing from a course, please stop in and see your advisor.
