As we enter the final weeks of the semester, I want you to know how much I value your attitudes, the quality of thought, and the community of architecture, planning and design you contribute to. Over the past two weeks, I have participated in a variety of national meetings regarding our disciplines where the value of collaboration has been heralded, and it reminds me of how we have valued and supported this in our college in recent years, and it is fitting that we live what we believe and lead efforts to develop meaningful and respectful interactions that yield amazing results to complex issues.

My warm regards as you finish the semester well!
Studio Cleanup
We do appreciate everyone’s assistance in cleaning the studios BEFORE you leave for break. During the winter break, the studio spaces will be cleaned by the custodial staff in preparation for the spring semester. Students are required to assist in the effort by cleaning their studio space before they leave studio for winter break (by TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 24th).
All students are required to take all personal materials home over the winter break.
1)    No items may be left or stored in studio over the break.
2)    Studios should be completely cleaned before leaving for break (by TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 24th at the latest).
3)    Please take any large items not wanted to the trash!
The only exception to this rule will be for the THESIS students. Thesis students may keep their materials in studio over the break – all items must be removed from the floor and stacked neatly on their desks to allow the custodians to clean the space.
If you have questions about this, please do feel free to reach out to Stephanie.

It can safely be said that we are entering the home stretch of what has been a unique and challenging semester. Many of you have just finished the first wave of final assignments to clear the way for the next wave of work on your studio projects to be followed by the final exams and the paper wave. As you attempt to keep your head above water and avoid being overwhelmed by these waves, I urge you to take some time and go for a short walk to enjoy the fall weather for a few moments. As I noted in an earlier newsletter article, access to nature, the biophilic moment, has been identified important to human health. More-
