Architectural Outreach

Communicorp, 2012

Every April, students from the Collaborative Architectural Project class present design plans and recommendations for individual and community organization construction projects. According to Peter Temple, associate professor of technology, design, and safety, the course, known as "Communicorps," emphasizes a team approach to solving real-life architectural problems. The class also allows students to experience the evolving nature of their projects and feedback from clients, faculty, classmates, and architects. More about Architectural Outreach

Due to the intimate size of the Architecture Program, students have the opportunity to develop friendships with their professors as they progress throughout their education."
