Laura's decision to enroll into the graduate program at SCI-Arc was fueled by her deep passion for architecture and design. "Architecture is the only discipline that allows me to explore diverse interests with an underlying principle of design. It allows me to tie all my ambitions into one large category."
Laura chose SCI-Arc primarily because instructors here are also practicing architects, not just academic scholars. "Because at SCI-Arc we learn from practitioners, we also get an idea about how things function in the real world," said Laura. "In fact, I feel my SCI-Arc degree will open many doors for greater opportunities for experimentation and creative partnerships in any field I embark upon."
SCI-Arc's unconventional atmosphere is also something Laura believes fuels the energy at the school. Her favorite studio experience: dance party breaks at 2:30am with studio mates. "SCI-Arc is a place that accepts you for who you are and who you will become, making one's student experience unique."
Laura's plans upon graduation include designing business solution for a more sustainable future. "I'm confident once I complete the M.Arch program at SCI-Arc, I will have a solid knowledge of design concepts and a strong professional network to help kick start my career."
