STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS

We believe it's important to be involved with your peers not only inside the classroom but also outside. Whatever your interests, there are multiple organizations available at Texas Tech to get involved in: AIAS, CoA Dialogues, CROP, Knights of Architecture, NOMAS, and Tau Sigma Delta Honor Society.

American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS)

The AIAS is an independent, non-profit, student-run organization that is more than just a club. This grassroots association is a cooperative between thousands of students (of all ages and academic degrees) committed to helping each other. It provides a sense of community and a forum to share differing views. AIAS is also a professional organization that is the official voice of architecture students.

CROP is a student-published collection of the best work produced within our program. Published annual, CROP showcases the most innovative, create, and distinctive work through the academic year.

Established in 2009, CROP is published in April each year and showcases the most innovative, creative, and distinctive work from the previous academic year as determined by the student-run editorial board.

National Organization of Minority Architect Students (NOMAS)

The National Organization of Minority Architect Students is an assemblage of students who bring greater awareness to the problems affecting minority groups within the architecture community through the use of provocative but constructive dialogue. Working within a larger national network, NOMAS seeks to address the issues of discrimination, professional relationships, culture, and public policy as they relate to minorities in the architecture community.

Many students continue to be involved with NOMA, the professional organization that NOMAS is a branch of, after graduating and entering the greater architectural community.
