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 fall 2018 is Friday, November 9 th.
There are a few things you should know about “Withdrawing” from a course:
· NEVER withdraw from a course without checking with your advisor 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
·Be mindful, 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 a member of our advising staff.

The Interior Design Program has had a long-standing working partnership with Prairie Pines Nature Preserve, a 145-acre area of natural interest and habitat for diverse species located at 112th and Adams Street in Lincoln. In the spring of 2014, the partnership began when Prairie Pines board member, Mike Hillis, first proposed a project with Lindsey Bahe and the 2nd year interior design studio. This project looked into the re-activation of a barn and metal quonset located on the site into a public Welcome & Learning Center. Since then, the Interior Design Program has continued an ever-evolving partnership with this non- profit organization, whose vision began in 1959 when former UNL Forestry Professor Walt Bagley and his wife Virginia purchased the farmland and made it their life’s work to restore it to its natural state.

We had a great showing of program faculty at the ACSA Fall Conference.
UNL faculty made strong presentations. Marc Maxey eloquently brought to light how the duties of an architect have narrowed over the years due to restrictions imposed by rules codified in the AIA Standards for Professional Practice and what that means for the profession today. David Newton presented his research on the design process understood as a multi-objective problem (MOP), in which architects must learn to balance a variety of requirements and constraints. Here Newton has mobilized his expertise in computing in the context of his comprehensive design studio, ARCH 411 Integrate. Ellen Donnelly presented her research on ultra-light camping understood as a radical and projective design project with social, political and cultural implications. More-
Last week we had the pleasure of the return of a former Hyde Chair, Dan Pitera to deliver a lecture on his work over the last two decades at the Detroit Collaborative Design Center. It was a great lesson in the definition of commitment and the passion required to sustain it over time. Pitera talked about the critical process he and his collaborators went through to establish the operational principles that underlie their design efforts. It started with the redefinition of the “typical” language and approach to working with communities. Rather talking about reaching down from above, it was about discovering the strength within the communities and working to bring out and amplify what is already theirs.

Materials Class Challenge
Cathy De Almeida materials class tested their basswood bridge structures. The students were challenged to create a bridge that spanned 36 inches and could bear a load of one brick. The structures were tested until they fail in order to determine their maximum load capacity. It’s a great exercise for testing the limits of products and materials. The student team with the highest weight ratio will earn extra credit.
As early enrollment for spring semester 2019 begins, we have two important reminders for Community and Regional Planning students:
First, the new “Capstone Studio” (CRPL 895) is available in the upcoming spring semester 2019. This new studio is the key component of the new “Capstone Studio Completion Track,” which was approved for the MCRP degree by the CRP faculty in March 2018.

Students pursuing this completion track enroll in the “Capstone Studio” in the final semester of their MCRP Program after having successfully completed the following core courses: CRPL 810, CRPL 830, CRPL 840 and CRPL 990. The “Capstone Studio” will be offered only in the spring semester of each academic year. More-
