CAP Student Organizations

Entering the College of Architecture and Planning, you will find a diverse and stimulating atmosphere. The student clubs and organizations contribute to that atmosphere. They are a great way to network and meet your peers, because as they say, sometimes it comes down more to whom you know than anything else.

Here are prominent student organizations you might be interested in learning more about.

American Institute of Architecture Students

The AIAS CU Denver Chapter is an outgoing group of architecture students interested in investing extracurricular time in being more  engaged in the world of architecture. Our members have established and participate in various student committees where they can learn more about and make a difference in their specific areas of interest, such as the Committee on the Environment for those interested in sustainable design, and many others. Furthermore, AIAS members have access to more design competitions and networking events than many others.
