Open House is our largest event of the year, we invite prospective students and their family members to learn more about disciplines in the College of Architecture. This year's event brought over 70 high school students plus parents to better understand the education and day-to-day life in the design fields. Thank you everyone who had a role in making this event such a success!
Reminder: Spring 2019 Class Registration

Spring advising season is here! All students are able to view the 2019 Spring Class Schedule in MYRED. This means you can put classes in your shopping cart, but please note that Priority Registration does not begin until October 22 nd

Please know that I am making updates to the Spring 2019 schedule almost daily, so be sure to check MYRED often – especially for professional elective updates!

Ultimately, please make an advising appointment to meet with your assigned academic advisor BEFORE October 22 nd! (You will see your advisor assignment in MYRED or CANVAS.) 

This week I hope your schedule allows you to attend the second of a series of Material Lab lunch & learn events. Molly Green will be presenting information on Sensitile products and educate us on light-manipulating materials. Bring your lunch, and we will provide a popcorn bar for you to create your own mix to enjoy. The presentation will be online so we will have a live stream feed and will be meeting in the gallery. This event does count for CEU credits so we welcome professionals and faculty to join. A big “thank you” to Stacy Spale for planning the event. More-
