Student Clubs


In addition to the Landscape Architecture clubs listed below, there are other clubs supported by each department and the CAED that can be found on the CAED Student Clubs web page.


Student Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (SCASLA)

The ASLA student chapter is a student organization that is affiliated with the American Society of Landscape Architects. Our mission is to promote education, community involvement, student activities, a sense of spirit and pride, wise planning, and artful design of our cultural and natural environments. ASLA involvement is quite extensive -- from community clean-ups, Habitats for Humanity, Open House activities, garden show exhibits, national professional and student conference participation, interdisciplinary activities, and inviting guest speakers to share their knowledge.

To learn more about SCASLA, connect with the club on Facebook or send the club an email at
