UF College of Design, Construction & Planning

The School of Architecture is proud to announce the Second Annual COMING HOME Alumni Storytelling Series and Reunion happening November 7-8, 2019.

This unique two-day, alumni-initiated event is comprised of storytelling, juries, and a mixer with School of Architecture alumni from across the country. The overarching theme is an open and honest query into the professional path of each speaker and the myriad forces affecting those paths following graduation from UF.

The Coming Home Series is a celebration of the breadth of professional opportunity available to School of Architecture graduates and the lifelong connections and friendships that are forged in our studios every year. Current students and faculty are offered a lens into the diverse and ever-evolving modes of practice that a degree from the University of Florida School of Architecture can serve as the foundation for. This event affords current students the chance to both expand and further hone their own professional aspirations while alumni bear witness to the evolution of the program and strong traditions that they are a part of as well as an opportunity to offer feedback on its future trajectory.

Presenting alumni are selected from differing facets of practice within the architecture, design, and construction communities, and beyond. Historically, these alumni are from the same graduating class; their rapport, respect, and admiration for one another is palpable to students and faculty alike.
