APDesign West work in progress


Landscape Architecture and Regional & Community Planning
Student Connection 08.13.15

Welcome back to campus!  We are excited to see everyone and get settled into APDesign West as construction begins on Seaton Hall. I hope that you've read the Canvas iNSTRUCTIONS and are ready to start the semester. 

A great deal of work has been done at APDesign West to ensure that the studios are ready and waiting for you. We know that the computer network will not be in place on the first day of classes and faculty are making plans for assignments and projects to kick off without reliance on computers being connected to the internet and intranet. 

As you make decisions about what to move to APDesign West, please consider your personal computing resources. If the computer you will setup at APDesign West is your only computer and/or access to the internet, you should probably keep it at your living space so that you can make temporary use of your computer there until the APDesign West network is set up. We are postponing computer setup day until the network is ready.

As you've read on the college APDesign West pagehttp://apdesign.k-state.edu/apdesign_west/apdesign_west.html, the building will be open Friday - Sunday, August 21-23, 8:00 am - 8:00 pm for move in. You are welcome to move your belongings into the space at anytime but you may not unpack them or select a desk until Sunday evening. Please place them against the far west wall of the LARCP space. Design selection will occur Sunday, August 23, 5:00 - 5:00 pm, in 30 minute blocks beginning with the graduating classes. Read the full schedule on the Canvas iNSTRUCTIONS. 

Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions as we move in. 
See you on August 23!
