We’re guessing that some of the most memorable experiences from your time at CAP were those you had on field trips, yes….Fall Fieldtrip Week is alive and well! What a great tradition. The places we have gone, the people we have met, and the friendships and professional connections we have made have extended far beyond our trips. All are reasons why our field studies continue to be such important parts of our degree programs.
Some of the most educational and meaningful experiences for our students are linked to field study, as you will see in the testimonials below. However, many students struggle to find the funds to join their studio for travel, so today we ask for your support as we continue in our 50-year tradition of fieldtrip week.
Thank you, in advance, for your support!
Coming from a working-class family, I have always stepped up to financially support my own endeavors. When I couldn't afford a trip to the Florida Keys/Miami that was pivotal to a semester studio project, I received travel funds and scholarships from professors and alumni. With this support, I was able to generate a beautiful and sustainable eco-tourist resort design for my studio project. - Anna Stachofsky
Field trip week has been an incredibly important aspect of my education for the past three years, and I would not have truly understood the tenets of good design without being able to experience these places myself. This fund contributes immensely to my ability to understand our field on a personal level. - Richard Meagher
During a field trip to the Florida Keys, I learned how landscape architects can address critical issues, such as sea level rise, and restore habits that have been destroyed by unsustainable tourism models. This prompted my shift from architecture into landscape architecture, where I saw that the ability to understand interrelated systems of culture of and ecology can provide a foundation to engage in the most pressing ethical and political concerns of our time. - Maddie Clark
I have been heavily impacted by field trips. Exploring real-world work environments, getting the chance to network with practicing landscape architects, and being exposed to fieldwork as a student is educational for my future as a professional. I have greatly appreciated the opportunities I have had. - Jake Maple
