Save The Date! Drury University’s Hammons School of Architecture 2018
On Friday October 5th, Drury University’s Hammons School of Architecture will host our annual DRURY ARCHITECTURE DAY event, for which I have attached an invitation that you can distribute to your students. This is an all-day event that allows high-school students interested in studying architecture to learn about our program, spend time in the design studios with our students, and tour area architectural offices.
We think that a broad range of your students might be interested in a career in architecture. Although many assume that you have to be great at math to do architecture, or you to have to draw well, or take drafting classes, in reality there are all kinds of students who can do well both academically and professionally as architects. In particular, our school seeks students who are creative problem solvers and strong conceptual thinkers.
Drury University offers one of the few nationally accredited architecture programs within a small liberal arts campus. This setting allows our faculty to know our students and understand their interests. Our flexible curriculum enables students to craft an education that matches their aspirations. Double-majors, extra-curricular activities, music, and athletics are common and encouraged. This broad and personalized approach prepares students to be leaders and innovators who move the field in unexpected directions. Our graduates not only pursue professional excellence but also lives well-lived—marked by commitments to communities and personal fulfillment.
I hope you will consider passing on the invitation to any of your students who you think might be interested. We would also be happy to arrange a presentation at your school if you have classes that might be curious about architecture as a career.
Your students can REGISTER FOR DRURY ARCHITECTURE DAY here:
Please don’t hesitate to call me if I can answer any questions.
Best regards - and thank you for the important work you do for your students.

United States Air Force Academy
Junior year is when the application process (http://www.academyadmissions.com/admissions/the-application-process/application-steps/) to the United States Air Force Academy truly begins. Students will start by filling out the Pre-Candidate Questionnaire, which becomes available online March 1 every year and starts the application process. When a student is ready to begin the application, they can visit the Pre-Candidate Questionnaire online (https://admissions.usafa.edu/gateway/gateway.aspx). Between March 1 of their junior year and December 31 of their senior year, they must also request nominations (http://www.academyadmissions.com/admissions/the-application-process/nominations/) from their state’s congressional representative(s) or other designated nominators.
Who Are We Looking For?
The United States Air Force Academy strives to create a highly qualified and truly diverse cadet wing at the Academy each year. In addition to diversity in terms of race, ethnicity and gender, we are looking to expand our applicant pool across individual characteristics defined by our diversity definition, including:
- Personal life experiences, including having overcome adversity by personal efforts
- Geographic background, such as region, rural, suburban, urban
- Socioeconomic and educational background, such as academic excellence and/or whether an individual would be a first generation college student
- Cultural knowledge and language abilities, with particular emphasis on cultures and languages of strategic importance to the Air Force
- Work background, including prior enlisted service
- Physical abilities, including athletic prowess
- Age, though applicants must be within statutory parameters for academy attendance
We take a holistic view of our applicants. They're more than a GPA or standardized test score. We're looking for students who have a desire to serve and seek an education that is on par with highly selective colleges and universities. For our top diversity candidates, we offer the Falcon Visitation Experience. This opportunity gives prospective students an opportunity to spend three days on our campus to get a first-hand look at what United States Air Force Academy life is like. If you have students who may be a good fit for this program, please have them talk to their admissions advisor (http://www.academyadmissions.com/admissions/outreach-programs/find-your-admissions-liaison-officer/).
If you have students who are interested in pursuing an appointment to the United States Air Force Academy and plan to visit the campus, they may wish to participate in an escorted tour and admissions briefing. Offered during the academic year to middle school, high school, and post-high school students, tours can help individuals gain a deeper understanding of the United States Air Force Academy environment. Escorted tours are conducted regularly throughout the academic year and require reservations 14 days in advance. We also offer Game Day tours. After the tour, participants will be allowed to purchase discounted tickets to cheer on our AF Falcons for football, hockey, and men’s and women’s basketball.
For more on available dates for both tours, please go here (http://www.academyadmissions.com/visit-the-academy/escorted-tours/) or call 1-800-443-3864.
