There are many ways for architecture students to get involved in the profession beyond the classroom. One way is to be come a participating member of the students groups on campus: American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS); Freedom by Design (FDB); and the Student Advisory Board (SAB).
American Institute of Architecture Students is open to all architecture students who are encouraged to participate in its many activities. AIAS organizes field trips to local firms, arranges portfolio reviews, and holds software tutorials for any students interested in participating.
Freedom by Design, the AIAS community service program, utilizes the talents of architecture students to radically impact the lives of people in their community through modest design and construction solutions. Vital modifications are made to enhance the homes of low-income and disabled individuals by addressing their struggles with everyday tasks such as bathing, ascending stairs and opening doors. Our priority is improving the safety, comfort and dignity of the home’s occupants.

Student Advisory Board of the School of Architecture is made up of one representative from each class. SAB is charged with communicating student concerns to the administration of the school and the college. The group meets in the studio and is open to all students of the school.
Call for members: Are you interested in representing your class year or nominating someone? If so, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 9/30/13. In the event that we have several nominees for a specific class year, we will hold an election.
