On October 30, architecture students gathered on the third-floor mezzanine of the Stuckeman Family Building for the eighteenth annual first-year studio costume parade. In conjunction with the event, the students held a pumpkin-carving contest sponsored by the American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS) and a bake sale with proceeds going to support the Penn State chapter of the National Organization for Minority Architecture Students (NOMAS). The parade, in the tradition of the Beaux Arts Ball, is part of the first-year design studio curriculum. Students create costumes that loosely relate to buildings. For the full story, click here.
