Office Associateship Students and Sponsors Gather in Knowlton Hall

Approximately 70 Knowlton students and representatives from sponsor firms gathered in the Knowlton Hall Center Space on Thursday, September 11 for the annual autumn Office Associateship Program (OAP) Reception. Student attendees were Master of Architecture and Master of Landscape Architecture students who have received graduate assistantships due to the financial support of OAP firm sponsors. Representatives, many of them school alumni, come from the more than 30 design firms and professional organizations that partner with the Knowlton School each year via the program.

The school hosts two events each year for Sponsors and Student Associates, the annual reception and the Office Associateship Dinner, which will take place next spring. The Office Associateship Program’s purpose is to attract and retain exceptional students and connects Student Associates with practitioners. Throughout the year, the program encourages one-on-one meetings between Sponsors and Student Associates.
