AIAS is the organization through which SARUP students find their voice, build confidence, and develop leadership skills. At the chapter level, AIAS is an organization of the students, by the students, and for the students. Our AIAS chapter organizes and coordinates professional development activities such as seminars, field trips, and networking events with architecture professionals. AIAS is a means for students to have fun and meet others through social activities, including our annual Spring Ball and Sandcastles Competition at the lakefront. This organization has a strong local and national presence and is continually growing. SARUP is affiliated with the national AIAS organization.
