New exhibit showcases work of College of Architecture, Planning & Design students

Thursday, Sept. 25, 2014

       



MANHATTAN 
— An exhibit, designed and installed by College of Architecture, Planning & Design students returning from spring and summer 2014 study abroad programs, is on display through Oct. 3 in the Chang Gallery and the first floor hallway of the east wing of Kansas State University's Seaton Hall.

The exhibition is free and open to the public. The gallery is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays.

Students in the college's degree-granting programs are given the option of participating in study abroad during and following their fourth year. In spring and summer 2014, 66 students in the college studied abroad.

According to Lynn Ewanow, associate dean and director of international programs for the college, students in architecture, interior architecture & product design, landscape architecture, and regional & community planning who study abroad return to campus with an expanded perspective of the world. She said the experience of living and studying in unfamiliar environments heightens cultural and historical awareness; improves self-reliance; encourages better understanding of global economics, politics and societies; and broadens professional horizons. It also provides exposure to different beliefs, values and ideas, as well as the opportunity to consider one's own culture with an enriched point of view.

"The College of Architecture, Planning & Design is committed to enhancing the study abroad experience for its students and supporting the emphasis on international education, which is part of K-State 2025," Ewanow said.

Study abroad destinations included Czech Technical University, Prague, Czech Republic; Dessau Institute of Architecture, Dessau, Germany; Denmark Institute for Study Abroad, Copenhagen, Denmark; Centro Studi Citta di Orvieto, Orvieto, Italy; University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia; Coburg University, Coburg, Germany; BOKU, Vienna, Austria; Stirling International Summer Program, Stirling, Scotland, United Kingdom; and the University of Western Australia, Perth, Australia.
