Lourdes Monje

Lourdes Monje, Bachelor of Science in Architecture '17, was recently profiled and interviewed by American Institute of Architecture Students. Monje was featured in a weekly email discussing studio culture.

Some highlights include:

Describe your studio culture: "My studio culture is diverse and open in the sense that classmates feel comfortable enough to critique each other's work.

What advice would you give a high school student about studio? "A high school student should understand that studio at my university is intense, a bit stressful, and awesome all at the same time.

I love studio because...."It allows me to interact with a diverse range of like-minded people while working on becoming the kind of designer I am meant to be."
