The American Institute of Architecture Students at the University of Oregon is a fun energetic student-run group. The association helps to build interest and enrich the educational and professional experience of students through different social and professional events.
The AIAS exists to promote excellence in architectural education, training and practice; to foster an appreciation of architecture and related disciplines; and to organize architecture students and combine their efforts to advance the science of art or architecture.
Educational activities include movie/lecture nights, workshops, faculty presentations, and giving students the chance to have their work submitted for publication. Community activities include Habitat for Humanity. Students interact with professionals on a regular basis.
The mission of the American Institute of Architecture Students is to organize architecture students in a combined effort for advancement in the field of architecture.
We strive to provide a stronger connection between the educational environment and the professional world. Our goal is to supplement architectural education with specific events that connect students with professionals in the field of architecture.
