Welcome to the 2015-2016 academic year! We are so very excited about the year ahead. We have some exciting news to start the year off right and in a forward motion.

Did you look around? Are you seeing this? If you don’t know, we have now fully transitioned onto a brand new website. We are excited about this transition as we believe it more accurately represents our membership… Creative, colorful, inspired and inspiring! With anything new, it takes some time. We are working very hard to fill it up with current and new content and are thankful for your patience as we do so. If you have comments or questions about the website, shoot us an email at with subject line “Website”. We appreciate all your feedback!

Our BRAND NEW membership process is now live! With a new website, we figured we should give our membership process a fresh look… Something that acts more like a shopping cart then a boring form. If you’re looking to join for the first time, you can click the Membership tab above to find out more! If you’re a returning member, the process is easier than ever! Go to the Membership tab above and click “Renew Membership”.

The Board of Directors is getting ramped up for an action-packed and productive year! With committees focused on advocacy, Freedom by Design, international membership and more, we are ready to make the most of our year serving our membership! You can learn a little more about our Board of Directors in the About the AIAS tab above!

We thank you all for making the AIAS possible. Without you, your passion, your ideas, and your leadership, the AIAS would not exist as the sole voice for architecture students in the U.S.!

Respectfully and humbly,

Danielle + Joel 

AIAS National President + Vice President
