The program abides by both Architectural Experience Program (AXP) and the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards’ NCARB standards. It requires communication between alumni and students — whether via email, on the phone, or via Skype —at least once a month and in-person meetings at least once a quarter. Several organized events and mixers are scheduled throughout the school year specially catered to the program’s participants.

Why should both students and alumni consider investing their time in such a program? Because it will give faculty members, students, and alumni the opportunity to stay connected, expand their network, and connect to the industry in a unique way.

We hope this program can offer a unique perspective and relationship to current NewSchool students, one not readily available through school or family, while also offering our alumni a convenient avenue to stay connected.
