DEAN'S MESSAGE
Open House was a huge success and a big thank you to all of you for your gracious welcome to potential students and their parents. We have several items on the near horizon this week, two that I will draw your attention to are the Tau Sigma Delta ASK - Advancing through Shared Knowledge. Look for the posters, sign up, and stop by on Tuesday evening from 7-10 pm.

Our next Hyde Lecture occurs in Omaha on Thursday in conjunction with the AIA Central States Conference, and I hope you will make your way to Gallery 1516 for this talk. Joseph Biondo, our speaker, is a design principal at Spillman Farmer Architects and the 2017 AIA Central States Region Excellence in Design Jury Chair.
Best regards,
Kathy

LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE
Landscape Architecture’s Special Studio Culture
Third-year landscape architecture’s studio culture is full of life and excitement. As a small class, they personalize their studio with things that make it comfortable and livable like coffee makers, bowls and cups, special lighting, swimming fish (yes, it is still alive) and variety of exotic plants (and yes, these are also still alive). This close and friendly community looks forward to working hard, late into the evening as well as the times where they find themselves laughing about silly things and pulling pranks on each other.

ARCHITECTURE
It is always fun to see the energy that potential students bring to the College during our Open House. It was great to meet the parents and answer questions from the high school students. In addition to preparing for that big event, the Structural Fundamentals class met the “Catwalk” challenge where they test their suspended structures.  The design challenge? Take a 16” x 16” cube, transfer a golf ball from the top 4” on one side to the bottom 4” on any other side. The structure must be in tension and should include a vertical or horizontal “jog”. It was great to see such creative designs. More-

Students were invited to define the retail space with consideration to retail fixtures, shopping patterns and behavior and merchandise layout and its influence on circulation, movement and shopper behavior.
