Hello Members of the Arch 2 LLC,
As we near the end of the first month of the Fall 2016 semester, I just want to say that I think we are off to a decent start. I know all of us have been spending many late nights at studio trying to finish up big projects due the next day or even next week. With that in mind, make sure you set aside some time for yourself or do other fun activities around campus. Do not let studio consume all of your time. I have been in talks with a friend of mine in the graduate program. I am trying to set up an event where he will come speak to us about UWM’s architecture program, what to expect with each passing year in the program, and benefits of some of these stress-inducing projects. I will let you know when we have that event scheduled. It will be more like a destressing event.
Aside from news here in the LLC, I have an important announcement from SARUP. On Tuesday, September 29, Tammy Taylor sent out an email advertising for a meeting about the Summer 2017 trip to Europe. The trip is an 8-week intense course guided by Gil Snyder and Bob Greenstreet where students will study in Paris, Venice, Florence, and London. There are also times set aside where students can travel abroad in Europe to explore other well-known cities. The courses offered for this course include “The City as Artifact” (3 cr.), “The Paris Studio” (6 cr.), and “The Paris Directed Research Seminar” (3 cr.). For those interested in the trip, there is more information at http://uwm.edu/sarup/summer-2017-parisitalylondon/ .
I hope that everyone continues to do well in studio and remembers to have some free time. Keep an eye out for event posters coming out soon and have fun this semester!
Resident Assistant, Zach
