American Institute Of Architecture Students (AIAS)

The American Institute of Architecture Students was founded in 1956 as a student run organization dedicated to the constant flux of issues that tax the profession. Working for better educational standards as well as influencing the profession for which they will soon be apart of. Membership is open to anyone interested in the organization and its purposes. The activities involved are far ranged and far reaching. The primary focus of the University of Florida AIAS chapter is to bring together students of all levels, providing the stage for interaction within the discipline as well as possibly outside of it. This platform for meeting will become the foundation from which the future of our profession is decided.
