Great things always going on in the IAPD Shop.
CURRENT STUDENT SPOTLIGHT - JAMIE CAUSEY
This past summer 4th year IAPD student, Jamie Causey, had a unique internship with a company headquartered in Iceland named Ossur.  Ossur designs and makes prosthetic limbs, as well as, support braces for the body.  Jamie worked on the "foot" team where she helped with new products for women and the updating of a user interface. Please take the time to read about her internship in the current student spotlight.
DIVERSITY EVENT - SEBNEM'S TURKISH CULTURE
As part of our Diversity Event this semester we will be celebrating Turkish culture.  Our own faculty member from Turkey, Prof. Sebnem Demirkan will present her lecture  "Turkey at the Intersection: Analysis of Dome Structures with a Specific Focus on Hamam." The lecture will focus on Architectural, Historic, Socio-Cultural and Artistic Effects of Hamam in the Daily Life of Women.  This lecture will take place on Wednesday at 5:30pm in the IAPD presentation area.  After the lecture, Turkish delights will be offered for all to taste and Turkish music that everyone can enjoy.
IAPD ADVISORY BOARD
We are so appreciative of our IAPD Advisory Board and the time they spent with us on Thursday and Friday.  The question and answer session on Friday with IAPD students was informative and helpful.
WEIGEL DISPLAY
Go check out the newest display in Weigel Library!  It focuses on 4 furniture designers: Gio Ponti, Vico Magistretti, Michael Thonet and Arne Jacobsen. A fun fact is that furniture design doesn't have to be the sole focus of one's creativity and design thoughts -  Ponti, Jacobsen and Magistretti were all practicing architects who also designed furniture.   
RUE DE RENDEZ-VOUS
The Beaux Arts Ball is the annual formal dance hosted by AIAS for the College of APDesign for all disciplines. This year's theme is Rue Du Rendez-vous, which is simply formal wear inspired by a masquerade ball. We will be having a mask contest so wear your best mask.   The dance is hosted at Tate's Bar in Aggieville. Doors will open at 9pm and close at 2am. Each ticket is $10 for non AIAS members, $5 for AIAS members. Proof of membership required. Professors gain admittance for free.
Find a representative to purchase your ticket.
3rd Years: Kathryn Zieno, Scott Pfeifer
4th Years: Taylor Hiltgen, Ashley Brunton, Alyce Torrez, Kaydee Seematter, Aaron Church, Morgan Brown
Representatives will be selling tickets from October 26 up until the dance on November 9th.
While AIAS does not actively promote the dance outside of APDesign, you are allowed and encouraged to bring your best friends or significant other, even if they aren't in our college! We want you to have fun! Enjoy drinks, billiards and dancing!
WEIGEL LIBRARY
