Architecture club creates opportunities to explore
THE SANTA CLARA
October 24, 2013
Plazas, parks and palaces — lovers of architecture now have a brand new reason to get excited. SCU ARCH, an architecture club, is now on campus, bringing together archiphiles both new and experienced.
“SCU ARCH is a club open to all majors and students,” said Marie McNamara, vice president of the club. “Our club mission is to encourage creative design and appreciate architectural wonders.”
SCU ARCH is here to serve and engage the Bronco community by providing the outlet for the appreciation of architecture and related service events. For those interested, another great part of joining the group is the chance to hang out with and get to know other students who share a passion or interest in the art of architecture.
“The executive committee wanted to encompass design and aesthetics into our understanding and studies of structures,” said McNamara. “We realized that there wasn’t an opportunity for students to be involved with this side of design on campus and wanted to provide this important educational prospect to (Santa Clara) students.”
McNamara has many goals as vice president of the club. She spent time running through the hallways in Dunne Residence Hall putting up flyers and knocking on doors. When asked what the objectives of SCU ARCH are, McNamara said, “We created ARCH with three objectives in mind: service, hands on tutorials and adventure, and so far we think we have.”
