Lunch is not usually provided so it is likely that we will go somewhere near the site for lunch together. If you would like to carpool, please post a comment below! (Green is GOOD!)

Spring Break:
We are throwing around several ideas of where to go for our Spring Break trip. We are thinking about doing a New York City trip with Mr. Jefferson and a trip to Rome, Italy with Mr. Card, for those who would rather go out of the country.

Cost Estimates (not including club subsidy):
Rome: $1,300 flights & hotels + $300 for food/museums/tours/etc. = $1600New York City: $800 flights & hotels + $300 for food/museums/tours/etc. = $1100

Club subsidy will be equal for both trips, the current estimate is $300/person. HOWEVER, the more fundraising we do, the higher that number goes!
With subsidy:Rome: $1000 deposit by November 1st + $300 club funds + $300 by March = $1300 from student
New York City: $500 deposit by November 1st + $300 club funds + $300 by March = $800 from student

We will vote on these at our next meeting (9/9 @ 12pm & 9/10 @ 5:30pm); to vote you MUST be a paid member.

Tutoring will be available soon! Keep an eye out for tutoring times and dates (they will be posted on classroom doors). If you would like to tutor your fellow students, see Mr. Jefferson or Ms. Julie for more information.

Make sure to follow us on Instagram and Twitter – @wtccaias

Our next meeting is going to be on September 9 at 12 PM in Room 219 (ETB), we will also be holding an evening meeting September 10 5:30-6:00 PM. Hope to see you there!

Meeting adjourned at 1:00 PM

Welcome to the Wake Tech Architecture Club

The mission of the Wake Tech Architecture Club is to gather outside of the class environment and explore all aspects of our architectural world. In the past we’ve traveled to Chicago and New York, visited architect and interior design offices in the area, toured construction sites, volunteered for Habitat For Humanity and participated in design contests.
