Welcome!

The AIAS & FBD E-Board is pleased to welcome new and returning students back to campus this fall. The E-Board is very excited to serve the students, faculty, friends, and mentors of the Northeastern School of Architecture, as well as the Greater Boston community. Our goal is to be a resource for students on their crazy ride through architectural education.

During the summer, we have worked hard to plan events that offer a break from studio and school work. These events serve as a sneak peak of what to expect in the years to come in both university and firm culture. We hope to help students build a network of amazing people, who share the same love and passion for architecture. We will host bi-weekly meetings to talk about upcoming events, development within the School of Architecture, and architectural happenings around Boston.

We hope to see you all there!

NORTHEASTERN UNIVERSITY AIAS + FREEDOM BY DESIGN

The American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS) is an independent, nonprofit, student-run organization dedicated to providing unmatched progressive programs, information, and resources on issues critical to architecture and the experience of education. The mission of the AIAS is to promote excellence in architectural education, training, and practice; to foster an appreciation of architecture and related disciplines; to enrich communities in a spirit of collaboration; and to organize students and combine their efforts to advance the art and science of architecture. Learn more at: aias.org.

Freedom by Design (FBD) constructs small service projects in the chapter’s community.

The Northeastern AIAS chapter offers many events throughout the school year that aim to meet the national mission. We host firm crawls that allow students to visit local firms in Boston and Cambridge to provide a sense of firm culture expectations and realities. It offers a mentorship program for upper and lower class students to meet and network, and provide a guide for lower class students as they begin in the architecture program. Northeastern’s chapter also host BBQ’s, game nights, and other architecture related events.
