Dean's Message
What an incredible group of alumni and friends in the Class of 1968. It was so enjoyable to hear their professional and personal journeys!

As we begin the fourth week of classes, we have a couple of events beginning as well - the Money Management session today at noon, and the first meeting of the Student Advisory Board Thursday morning. In the coming weeks we will have speakers who are in the area for other events and through the generosity and foresight of our alumni and professional organizations, will be here in Arch Hall for your benefit. Please take advantage of these exceptional opportunities to stretch your knowledge and perspective.

Math & Physics Help!

Did you know that both the Math and Physics Departments offer free tutoring through their Resource Centers? We strongly suggest that you visit these resource rooms if you are feeling a little overwhelmed by Math or Physics. It is much better to start using the lab resources now, than later! 

The Math Resource Center is a free tutoring service and is the primary facility for undergrad students who have questions about any pre-calculus or calculus course offered at UNL. No appointments are necessary! See their website for hours :

The Physics Resource Room offers assistance with introductory physics courses (including PHYS 151!) during the fall and spring semesters. Graduate students provide tutoring and homework help. Check out their site for hours:

Please remember, students in the College of Architecture must receive a grade of C or better to pass calculus. And architecture students must receive a grade of C or better to pass physics. Interior design students using physics for their natural science elective must also pass physics with a C or better.

Money Management Lunch and Learn Today!

As part of our “wellness series” we will be hosting a lunch and learn for our students TODAY, September 10 th , in the Gallery from 12-1 p.m.

Megan Patel, from the Student Money Management Center, will host a workshop focusing on budgeting, credit and student loans.

• Why is your credit score and credit report important?
• How to improve your credit
• What types of financial aid are available
• What do you do with financial aid refunds?
• When do you have to start paying back student loans?
Join us for this important workshop (and lunch!)

Over the summer we’ve added a student resource page where you can find information that hopefully will make your life easier here at the College of Architecture. On this page you’ll find technology, career, financial aid and student policy information to name just a few items. Take a moment to review its contents this week.

The Nebraska Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) hosted an on-site class session on August 27th for over 20 students enrolled in the CRPL 472/872 “Hazard Mitigation Planning” course taught by Dr. Zhenghong Tang and Jeff Henson (MCRP 2013), hazard mitigation and emergency planning department manager at JEO Consulting Group, Inc., in Lincoln.

Two weeks into the semester and everyone is busy at the business of exploring new knowledge, working with communities and generally exhibiting the energy that makes the Landscape Architecture Program special. Over the past couple weeks, I have been having mixers with different groups of students to find out what they have been doing in their internships, introduce them to the support structure we have put in place to help them be successful as they start their studies in the college and generally get better acquainted. They are all a great group of people. I hope, over the course of this year, to have a chance to introduce some of them to you in this column. More -
Design Studio is the center of the curriculum of the three degree programs in Architecture: BSD, 2- Year M.Arch and 3-Year M.Arch. Each studio introduces the student to a different facet of the discipline and profession: history, theory, program, site, environment and structures, for example. While the facets may change from studio to studio, the common element is the integration of these facets through the act of design-making, -thinking and -communication. More-
If you haven’t noticed, the college has recently re-opened the Materials Interactive Lab and Gallery. We are considering this space a work in-progress, as its full potential is yet to be met. We anticipate growing the resources available in the lab with new and emerging material types (similar to the samples that can be found on the North end of the display wall), a lighting test system, exterior based materials, and the interactive digital media to enhance your learning related to material fabrication, application, installation and performance.
