Georgia Students of Landscape Architecture (GSLA)
Thursday, August 17, 2017 — GSLA Welcomes Back the CED!
With the new school year officially underway, the GSLA officers want to welcome everyone back to the CED. We are incredibly excited for all that is to come this school year, and want to introduce who we are and what GSLA is, as well as to extend an opportunity for membership to all CED students.
Georgia Students of Landscape Architecture (GSLA) is the student chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA), which is the nationally recognized professional organization for landscape architecture. This school year, GSLA’s mission is to enrich knowledge of landscape architecture, connect students with our professional world, and promote sustainable design through design charrettes, networking activities, and community outreach. The officers would love to see a high level of participation among students throughout our college so that we as a college can promote our profession while gaining experience outside of the classroom.
This year, membership dues are $25 without a t-shirt and $35 including a t-shirt and can be paid either by cash to any GSLA officer or through our Venmo account (@GSLA_UGA). Please leave your name, email, and t-shirt size (if applicable) either way you choose to pay. We will begin compiling emails for our listserv for the school year.
Officers will be tabling beginning next week (Monday, August 21) in the front of the Jackson Street Building. We will have more information then regarding a t-shirt design contest as well as our first meeting of the semester, so please be sure to stop by if you’d like more information regarding GSLA in general and/or any of our upcoming events.
Monday, August 21, 2017 — Weekly Update
Happy second week of a new semester, everyone! GSLA officers hope everyone is settling into the new school year and enjoying classes so far. We are very excited for the year ahead and are eager to share details regarding GSLA’s first few events with you all.
First and foremost, the officers will be tabling at the front of the Jackson Street Building this week. We are hoping to meet our new members and spread the the word face to face about GSLA to those who may be unfamiliar with our student organization. This gives you (both new and returning members alike) a chance to pay dues for the semester as well as to get to know your new GSLA officers. Some faces you will see this school year include:
Megan Perry – President
Ben Gladstone – Vice President
Nick Parker – Treasurer
Seth Bollinger – College Liason
Katie Boucek – Social Media Chair
Luke Gregory – Secretary
Mia Bomar – Event Chair
We are all very much looking forward to meeting you, so please feel free to stop by our table even if it’s just to chat.
If you are interested in becoming a GSLA member this year, there are a few options for paying dues. You can pay either $25 if you do not want a t-shirt or $35 if you would like a shirt. We are excited to announce a t-shirt design competition that will determine the design on the front and back of the shirts for the 2017-2018 school year. To enter the competition, please submit a PDF of your ideas for both the front and back of the shirt to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight on Tuesday, September 5th. Your design should include the following information: the name of our organization, 2017-2018, ASLA (our parent organization), and any other information you would like to include. The winner will be announced on Friday, September 15th at Parking Day, and first place will receive $50 cash. In addition, second place will be exempt from paying GSLA dues, and third place will receive a free t-shirt. We know there is so much design talent throughout our college, and are excited to see all the designs that are entered into the competition.
Our first chapter-wide meeting will be held at 10am on Wednesday, August 30th in the Jackson Street Building. Stay tuned for an official room number. We can’t wait to see you all there and discuss many of the events we have planned for this school year.
