Advancing leadership, design, and service among architecture students.

The American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS) is an independent, nonprofit, student-run organization dedicated to providing unmatched progressive programs, information, and resources on issues critical to architecture and the experience of education. The AIAS aims to promote excellence in architectural education, training, and practice; to foster an appreciation of architecture and related disciplines; to enrich communities in a spirit of collaboration; and to organize students and combine their efforts to advance the art and science of architecture.


AIAS Kent State is a membership-based student organization at Kent State University. We are comprised of students in the College of Architecture and Environmental Design and find our home in the award-winning building, designed by Weiss/Manfredi.
