This is a single point reference for the Landscape Architecture program to plan the semester in advance. Faculty will use tool to plan courses around events, like lectures, portfolio reviews and visits by alumni. As a student, you will be able to visualize the whole semester and know important dates related to each project. This is a new initiative for our program to keep everyone on the same page.
