welcome to aias Illinois!
The goal of AIAS is to help our members become more well-rounded as architects and as individuals by promoting the professional, academic, and social facets of architecture. On the professional side, AIAS helps students prepare for professional life by engaging practicing architects in our area. On the academic side, AIAS provides learning and service opportunities to complement the current architectural curriculum. Finally, on the social side, AIAS events and activities encourage a positive student culture and fellowship in a diverse student body.
