Chicago area high school students interested in exploring career opportunities in the areas of architecture, building and construction should attend the Chicago Architecture + Design Career Day hosted by the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago on October 16, 2010. Over 50 architecture and design schools will be on hand to talk with students and parents about their programs for architecture education. Judson will have an admissions councilor and the Assistant Chair for Undergraduate Programs, Prof. Ian Hoffman, at the event. For more information and to register

Computer or iPad?

Trying to decide whether to get a new computer or laptop for college?

At Judson Architecture we do all our studio work by hand for the first two years of the program to invest deeply in tactile “making.” Prospective, first and second years students, consider an iPad with a keyboard charging station instead of a new computer. With apps for everything you could need, including Pages and Numbers, for all the needs you might have for papers and reports, as well as internet information, we recommend an iPad for under $700 rather than a computer. All architecture students have a required laptop purchase in the fall of third year, so this is a better investment and gives ultimate portability. Since almost every space on campus is served by wireless, this is a very affordable option for computing flexibility. The 3G option is not required.

A Saturday in Judson Architecture

Well into the third week of classes, Judson architecture students are finishing first round of papers, studio projects, and research proposals. Judson brings students to the northwest suburbs of Chicago from all over the United States. The only evangelical Christian university the country to offer a professional M.Arch. degree, Judson is THE place to study for students who want to have a career in architecture of significance and purpose. Alumni from JU are owners of architecture offices, serve in international ministry organizations and NGO’s, and work for some of the most influential offices in the world.

Judson architecture students have been designing habitat for humanity houses, working with local communities for urban redevelopment visions, designing worship environments for local congregations, and independent projects as well. Students are studying architecture precedents in their history and theory classes, studying construction technology and methods, and exploring structures and innovations in sustainable design.

It is a great start to the year at Judson University Architecture.
