American Institute Architecture Students (AIAS)
The American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS) at Wentworth is a chapter of a national non-profit student-led architecture organization with the mission to promote excellence in architecture education, training, and practice; to enrich communities in a spirit of collaboration; and to organize students and combine their efforts to advance the art and science of architecture to foster an appreciation of architecture and related disciplines.
The AIAS is one of five collateral organizations that lead the profession of architecture in the United States. The other organizations are the American Institute of Architects (AIA), the National Council of Architecture Registration Board (NCARB), the National Architecture Accreditation Board (NAAB), and the American Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA). Wentworth's chapter sponsors events on campus and connects Wentworth students to a nationwide body of students. The Wentworth chapter regularly participates in Quad and Forum, which are AIAS regional and national conference.
Wentworth Architecture Club (WAC)
The Wentworth Architecture club is a student-run organization dealing with issues and events related to architecture at Wentworth. The club plans architectural field trips, competitions, and other activities at Wentworth as well as in the greater New England area. The club works closely with the AIAS chapter at Wentworth, representing the voice of the students in the architecture department.
Wentworth Architecture Review (WAr)
Architecture students established the Wentworth Architecture Review (WAr) to showcase their work and ideas, increasing public awareness of the rich culture of Wentworth’s design students. The first issue includes interviews, photographic works, and images from projects representing the program’s entire spectrum of students, from first-year students through graduate students. Composed entirely of students, the journal’s leaders have created a website www.wit.edu/war that acts as a shared resource center and a place for exchanging thoughts through a blog.
