This weekend WIAD (Women in Architecture and Design), a student-run club on campus, organized a firm crawl in Chicago. Our group of around 11 girls visited 8 firms over 3 days that focused in either architecture or design. This experience was really eye-opening as we got a taste of all the different career options design can take you. It was also a great chance to experience such a fun and beautiful city. There are lots of different “roadshows” or firm crawls organized by the school and groups on campus for all different majors!
Our group had to visit the Bean of course.
