Letters from the Director

Some say State College is a remote location, but thanks to recent visiting guests, the Stuckeman School experienced a worldwide tour these past few weeks! Through both a wonderful exhibit and engaging lecture, Toru Mitani revealed the unique details behind his design work in Japan. Many have remarked how much they’ve enjoyed seeing enlarged construction details on display in the Rouse...
The changing of clocks brings welcome extra light at day’s end and the promise of spring. It also means in just two months many students will spring forward into their new post-college lives. Next week when students return from spring break there will be great anticipation about Career Day. This year we are pleased that our 30 available slots – filled totally by the luck of which...
Though it's also the name of a Bruce Springsteen song, here I am referring to our current Stuckeman School ties: the weather, accreditation, and design. In Central Pennsylvania this winter, the most common tie that binds us all is the weather! Nearly everyone can share a shoveling, icy-walking, or burst-pipes story from their own or a friend’s experience. Who decided this should be...
What does this new year have in store for us? Well actually, we would like your assistance in figuring that out! I can tell you that the upcoming months are going to be quite exciting here at the Stuckeman School, but we need your help in outlining our hopes and aspirations for the future. Our search for the new school director is going very well and three strong candidates will be visiting Penn...
The approaching holidays frame out what has been a vibrant fall semester at the Stuckeman School. It also has been an award-laden autumn, with architecture professor James Wines winning the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award from Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum. Recent landscape architecture graduate Matt Moffitt (’13 B.L.A) received the ASLA’s highest...
We all grew tremendously during our classroom experiences in college, but it was the coveted “real world” experience of a summer internship that many of us desired. And of course, a key goal of getting a degree is to find a good job. The recent economy has made it that much more challenging for students to connect with these opportunities, but that is changing – for two key...
How many of us have that little pull in our heart when fall rolls around? This is one of my favorite times of year – we return to school after the summer break refreshed; inspired by special experiences; anxious to reconnect with dear friends; ready to continue learning about our chosen professions! I relish welcoming fresh new faces into our special community. The promise of unique,...
New Year, New Start The new year and new semester offer new beginnings and the promise of the exciting exchange of ideas. The Stuckeman community gathered at the start of the semester to honor Cal Stuckeman, to remember his brightest moments and thank his family once again for their generosity and dynamic legacy. This semester we boldly envision exciting moments from the Stuckeman Endowed...
On November 15, 2012, our school suffered a tremendous loss with the passing of friend, benefactor, and treasured Distinguished Alumnus Cal Stuckeman. As recently as this past April, Cal inspired students, faculty, and staff with a visit to campus. For four days he met with students, alumni, and faculty, participating in end-of-year reviews and banquets. His untiring interest in the lives of Penn...
Having just missed the brunt of our recent storm, I want to send words of encouragement and regards to our alumni and friends on the East coast. Our thoughts are with you. November is a very active time in the Stuckeman School. Aside from ongoing lectures and exhibitions, our students and faculty are making the last big push before the end of the semester. Being in the thick of deadlines,...
