We are one week away from final review week, and ever so close to making it to a much deserved semester break. Be sure to take care of yourself and your classmates as we all ramp up and settle in to meeting our academic goals.
Some quick reminders of meetings and events you might choose to participate in:
• IIDA Mid-America “Brand U” Online Workshops. The registrations fees are $8 IIDA member/$11 non-member per session. You can register by clicking on this link: Ticketleap Registration: Click Here. I believe that third and fourth year students would be particularly interested in the two sessions below that align with seeking internships and jobs this summer.
o Thursday, November 12th 3- 4 pm: Suzanne Tron with The Viscusi Group will talk to us about resume tips and keys to developing this document. Plus, conversation on LinkedIn tips. Tron has spoken at the IIDA Neocon Student Design Charette and ASID events. She will be joining us from Florida, it is a treat to have her in our lineup this year.
o Friday, November 13th 3- 4 pm: Our very own Kendra Ordia with the University of Nebraska will share with us her insights on all things portfolio. Ordia has presented on this topic at the IIDA SHIFT student conference for the TX and OK Chapter and ASID events.
• Speaking of internships and jobs, I have previously communicated via email to third year students to attend an informative meeting regarding internships and productive use of your six-week break for portfolio development. This is a reminder to mark your calendars for 12 pm on Tuesday, November 24. Please email me if you need the Zoom link.
• Final Design Reviews will be happening November 16-20. Be sure to look for communication from the college about different opportunities to see the work of not only the Interior Design Program, but Landscape Architecture and Architecture studios as well. I know there will be a variety of opportunities to see the work of your peers.
