DEAN'S MESSAGE
Today, we remember those who lost their lives in the 9/11 tragedy and those whose lives were changed forever. Significantly, we honor those who exhibited selfless bravery and compassion, and inspired others to do the same. Certainly for each of our professions and the built and designed environments, we note a significant pre- and post-9/11 difference in how we approach planning and design.

This week, students will have the opportunity to vote on the Student Advisory Board elected members; I am looking forward to our first meeting and the year ahead - we have much to accomplish!

Later this week, we initiate this year's Hyde Lecture series with our Hyde Chairs Cruz Garcia and Nathalie Frankowski!
Best regards,
Kathy

ARCHITECTURE
INTERIOR DESIGN
The Interior Design program has embedded in its curriculum a 3-credit minimum internship experience. This internship typically occurs the summer between the students’ junior and senior year. Having had most of the curriculum complete, the students have learned to apply many key skills and methods to the design of the interior space, which allows them to have enriching hands-on, learning experiences and permits them to see their education applied in professional environments. In addition, this experience often gives our students motivation to complete their senior year with a renewed sense of purpose and high achieving goals to find jobs that they are passionate about and teams that they are eager to join.  More-
