What a difference a week makes! See you on Sunday for desk selection.


Landscape Architecture and Regional & Community Planning
Student Connection 08.20.15

Welcome back to campus!  In a few short days we'll be up and running with a new semester. 

Have you taken care of the things on the checklist below?

1. Completed Tasks 1-6 of the Network Setup (info on the Network Setup (8) Canvas course).

2. Downloaded all necessary software per instructions on the Network Setup (8) Canvas course.

3. Reviewed all information on the iNSTRUCTIONS Canvas course.  

4. Decided what to move to APDesign West. 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.

APDesign West 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 (that's the corner you see at the back of the photo above)

Desk selection will occur Sunday, August 23, 5:00 - 8:00 pm, in 30 minute blocks beginning with the graduating classes. Read the full schedule on the Canvas iNSTRUCTIONS. 

Note to RCP students: NB 2nd and 3rd year students must select a desk at APDesign West. NB 4th and 5th year and PB 2nd year students are encouraged to select a workspace. You may have a full desk or share one with another student. A collaborative RCP work area is designated within the studio layout.

Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions as we move in. 

See you on Sunday, August 23, for desk selection at APDesign West and on Tuesday, August 25, 10:30 am in the Union Big 12 Room for the LARCP Forum. Also, plan to be in the APDesign Photo at 4:00 pm on Monday, August 24, in front of Seaton, and to attend the APDesign Forum at 4:30 pm with a BBQ to follow.
