COURSE EVALUATIONS
It is the time of the semester for course evaluations. Course evaluations are intended to provide thoughtful and constructive feedback on a variety of aspects of a course. Each course is required to conduct course evaluations, and we want you to be aware of the process so we ensure maximum participation of students.

Your professor may send you the link, or include the link to the course evaluation on the Canvas announcements page. Additionally, each professor is asked to arrange a time with our Dean's office staff for a person not associated with the instruction of the class (not a GTA or one of the professors who should all be out of the room while evaluations are being completed) to administer the evaluations in person. What will this mean? If the course is team-taught, it is important that each faculty member receive feedback on their contributions. The staff member will bring paper copies of the form and one faculty member will be addressed through the online course evaluation form while the other through the paper form.

You are to complete the course evaluations individually, and provide your feedback on the course. Course evaluations come to the college, program, and faculty members after grades are submitted. These evaluations are important tools and information provided is carefully considered.

ARCHITECTURE
Welcome back! I hope you all had a festive and restful holiday with friends and family. As we gear up for the end of semester, I know that you will all be working hard to make that final last push. In this, organization and time management skills are critical. Be sure to get enough sleep every night so that during the day, and in all your classes, you optimize productivity. It’s also good to take breaks and here I suggest that you visit the Sheldon Museum of Art. It is a gem right here on campus. Designed by the architect Philip Johnson, the Sheldon has an impressive collection of artwork, and right now, there is an extraordinary exhibition of photographs, paintings and sculptures, on the second floor. Titled “Approaching Landscapes,” the exhibition is a visual feast for the eyes on the shape, composition and non-composition of things in the age of the Anthropocene. As architects, it is important to continuously improve our visual literacy, and a good way to do so is to take a break from our busy lives and visit the museum next door.
INTERIOR DESIGN
First, a moment to celebrate a national recognition for the MSID Program! The Masters of Science in Architecture – Specialization in Interior Design program was recently ranked fifth Best Master’s in Interior Design Programs for 2019 by OnlineMasters.com. Additionally, the MSID Program earned the added distinction of Best Faculty. This recognition speaks to the dedication of our online graduate students and our faculty for often going above and beyond to foster and mentor our students in their pursuit of an advanced degree through academic research. I think it is important to note the third highest graduation rate when compared to our fellow top eight recognized programs. Take a look!   More-
LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE
With Thanksgiving holiday behind us, the end of the semester is just around the corner. A lot needs to be accomplished in a short period of time. It can seem like an insurmountable hill that needs to be climbed. You can do it, but you need to schedule your time and have a plan before you get started. Included in this schedule should be sleep every night. It is not healthy and counterproductive to do all-nighters. There are lots of decisions that need to be made during this final push. Your productivity and ability to make decisions drops dramatically without you realizing it, when you are sleep deprived.
