Club - American Institute of Architecture Students
The American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS) is an independent, nonprofit, student-run organization dedicated to providing unmatched progressive programs, information, and resources on issues critical to architecture and the experience of education. The mission of the AIAS is to promote excellence in architectural education, training, and practice; to foster an appreciation of architecture and related disciplines; to enrich communities in a spirit of collaboration; and to organize students and combine their efforts to advance the art and science of architecture.

The Northeastern AIAS chapter offers many events throughout the school year that aim to meet the national mission. We host firm crawls that allow students to visit local firms in Boston and Cambridge to provide a sense of firm culture expectations and realities. It offers a mentorship program for upper and lower class students to meet and network, and provide a guide for lower class students as they begin in the architecture program. Northeastern’s chapter also host BBQ’s, game nights, and other architecture related events.
