Support Landscape Architecture Student Exploration Across Alabama

The College of Architecture, Design & Construction needs financial assistance for Experience Alabama, an immersive, boots-on-the-ground experience for students in Auburn’s Landscape Architecture program. 

Each student's annual cost for field studies is roughly $2,000 - $4,000, and Experience Alabama is typically around $1,200 of that cost. Expenses range from airfare and hotel rooms to car rentals, gasoline and food. Experience Alabama launches our students into their studies meaningfully by experiencing the rich, complex, and messy realities of the landscapes and communities they work with.

Students travel the state from the Gulf Coast to the Tennessee River Valley, exploring Alabama's diverse landscapes and cultures. From indigenous mounds and rare ecosystems to important sites in the struggle for Civil Rights and contemporary works of landscape architecture, students begin to understand the varied systems that have shaped our shared landscapes. Students get to know the state and each other, building the foundation of knowledge that will allow them to actively engage in addressing the pressing issues facing the state of Alabama as both designers and citizens.

In Landscape Architecture, we strive to build in our students a passion for the diversity of landscapes and cultures through fieldwork. This travel component of our design studios directly engages landscapes and communities outside the university's walls, and many students need help finding the funds to participate. 

By supporting resources for student field studies travel, you are investing in the future landscape architects who shape tomorrow.
